The FLASH Research Programme is a new funding instrument that allows researchers to react quickly in case of exceptional events by setting up joint research projects between partners from Brazil or India and Switzerland. The research project must focus on and be directly linked to the event; the research project will study effects, impact and implications of the event, that could not be observed under normal conditions.
