Information event additional thematic call

Information Event

The r4d programme organised an information event for researchers interested in submitting pre-proposals in the additional thematic call with four topics. The 40 participants used this opportunity to learn more about the specifics of the r4d programme and to clarify questions.

​Between 2012 and 2014 the r4d programme launched five thematic calls. A total budget of maximal CHF 14 million is now made available for funding additional 5 to 7 r4d projects. The additional thematic call invites proposals in four topics. The selection process is fully competitive and does not follow a predefined allocation to the four topics.

On 1st March 2016 the r4d programme organised an information event for researchers interested in submitting pre-proposals in the additional thematic call. The 40 participants used this opportunity to learn more about the specifics of the r4d programme and to clarify questions. The questions focused particularly on the number and eligibility of research partners and the composition of research consortia; budget and financial conditions; research staff and sub-contracting.

All information necessary for submitting pre-proposals can be found in the Call Document . In addition, the SNSF Funding Regulations and the General Implementation Regulations for the Funding Regulations provide further information (see Administration of grants ).
