Leading House MENA: Call for Research Partnership Grants

This call for projects aims at developing new joint project proposals or connecting already existing and independently funded projects in Switzerland and in the MENA partner countries into long-lasting cooperation. Submission deadline is September 12, 2022.


The goal of this instrument is to allow researchers to conduct desk work, field research or laboratory feasibility studies, in order to apply for grants from other funding agencies (e.g. national funding agencies or EU funding schemes), and/or to develop long-term partnerships between two institutions or research groups. The maximum amount that can be requested is CHF 15,000 per project. Approximately ten projects will be selected at the end of the call. The same instrument was offered in 2021 and will be available again in 2023.

Please see the website of the Leading House Middle East and North Africa for more detailed information.

Submission deadline: 12.09.2022
