In the frame of the Strategic Japanese-Swiss Science and Technology Programme (SJSSTP) and in collaboration with the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), the SNSF launches the second bilateral call for Joint Research Projects (JRPs) with Japan. 8-10 projects can be financed.
The grants will support joint research projects between Switzerland and Japan in the thematic areas of Mathematics, Natural and Engineering Sciences. Most of the projects will run for three years and the grants of Swiss researchers will cover similar costs as project funding grants (research funds, salaries, etc.). The maximum grant is CHF 250’000 for Swiss researchers or JPY 30 million in Japan.
