Thirteen new transnational partnership projects are funded in the 2nd thematically open call. Researchers from 15 countries are involved.

​The second thematically open reseach call of the r4d programme met with great demand from the research community. In a two-step evaluation, 13 projects out of 80 submitted pre-proposals were selected. The two criteria, scientific quality and relevance for development, were equally weighted. An overall budget of CHF 6.6 million is available for the 3-year projects.

The researchers from Africa, Asia, Latin America and Switzerland work in partnership on a wide range of topics, such as health, social media for education, resource extraction or rice diversity.
