European Space Agency (ESA) - Continuously Open Research Announcements (CORA)
ESA research announcements are the official access routes for institutional users to use research facilities managed by ESA's Directorate of Human and Robotic Exploration. The Science Department of ESA’s Human Spaceflight and Exploration Directorate recently undertook an extensive exercise to create a new strategy, focusing on a set of newly-defined goals to positively shape its research programme and maximise research.
Opportunity Grants for ASEAN, China, Japan, South Korea
Opportunity grants will support activities of Swiss researchers from universities, universities of applied sciences or public research institutes linked to specific events or incidents in China (including Hong Kong and Taiwan), Japan, South Korea and member states of ASEAN. Examples of such events are on the one hand large public happenings, such as the Olympic Games, international or national Expos etc., or on the other hand major environmental or economic developments in the region. The goal of the opportunity grants is to provide non-bureaucratic support to bottom-up initiatives. These initiatives aim at increasing the visibility of Swiss science and technology abroad or applying its results to a concrete development or challenge. Projects must go beyond research cooperation or academic conferences. Please check with the Leading House whether your initiative is suitable.
Deadline: call permanently open until 2020
Sino-Swiss Science and Technology Cooperation
In the context of the Sino-Swiss Science and Technology Cooperation (SSSTC 2016), the SNSF and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) have issued a call for Joint Research Projects (JRPs).
Joint Research Projects (JRPs) allow researchers in Switzerland to collaborate with researchers in China. The projects will have a duration of between three and four years, with funding on the Swiss side amounting to a maximum of CHF 350,000 per project. The costs covered by the grants are comparable to those covered in national SNSF projects (equipment, research funds, salaries).
