The State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) has commissioned ZHAW as Leading House for the bilateral research collaboration with partner institutions in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Iran, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. This bridging grant offers the possibility to continue joint research in order to prepare a grant application for a full joint research project e.g. through the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), EU funding or any other national or regional funding body.
Bridging grants offer Swiss researchers who have already successfully completed a project with a partner in South Asia or Iran the possibility to continue joint research in order to prepare a grant application for a full joint research project (e.g. through the Swiss National Science Foundation, EU funding or a national or regional funding body).
Bridging grants may also enable the intensification of joint teaching or curriculum development.
