KFPEKFPE – (Commission for Research Partnerships with Developing Countries) is launching the second call of this programme supported by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, SDC.

Learning events enhance the educational, scientific and training competencies of individual researchers as well as their research institutions. KFPE’s Learning Events Programme supports researchers from developing countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin America involved in research partnerships with a Swiss institution and promotes interdisciplinary and intercultural learning.

Swiss institutions and/or their partners in developing countries are invited to submit proposals for the learning events. Learning and training content should include soft skills, theories, methods, integrated approaches, thematic specialisations, and inter- and transdisciplinary working methods.

A first call was launched in April 2013. After the first call, the evaluation team decided to launch only one call in 2014. The total available amount of CHF 150’000 will be allocated to 3-4 projects.

Learning events must take place in 2014

This second call is open until 28 February 2014
