The Call offers project grants for pluri-disciplinary teams working on international studies. The SNIS (Swiss Network for International Studies) supports pluri-disciplinary projects in the social sciences and pluri-disciplinary projects that combine natural and social sciences. The SNIS does not support pluri-disciplinary projects that only consist of natural sciences. The SNIS does not fund individual grants, i.e., career grants.
Projects must run for two years, and funding can range from 100’000 to 300’000 Swiss francs.
There are two thematic branches of the Call:
- The general Call: in any area of International Studies as defined above;
- Theme 2021: defined by the SNIS International Geneva Committee: ‘Covid – 19: What lessons for multilateralism? (particularly in view of climate change action)’
There is no quota for the general Call or the annual theme, i.e., applicants have no statistical advantage when submitting to either branch.
