Research partnership grant 2022

The call for projects "Research Partnership Grant" is open for applications. This call 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. 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. 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. Applications are open until 12 September 2022. They can only be submitted by registering on this platform. Information requests can be sent to lhmena(at) Eligibility criteria, funding regulation and selection process are given in the call document, available on the LHMENA website. An FAQ is also available on the website and updated regularly.
