The Swiss Network for International Studies (SNIS) offers project grants for pluri-disciplinary research teams. The project grants run for two years and range from 100’000 to 300’000 Swiss Francs.

Submission deadline 20 January 2022.

Project proposals by eligible institutions (Universities, Universities of Applied Science, Universities of Teacher Education) must qualify as:

  • International studies: The SNIS adopts an inclusive understanding of International studies. Therefore, research in international studies concerns issues that are pluri-disciplinary, relevant to the international agenda, and for which international cooperation is required to produce policy-relevant outputs. Issues may combine political, economic, social, environmental, historical, legal, health, scientific, and development dimensions of complex societal questions.
  • Pluri-disciplinary: Projects are pluri-disciplinary and they can include disciplines from both the social and natural sciences.

In addition to the above criteria, the SNIS strongly encourages collaborations with International Organizations and NGOs.

Thematically, submissions can be made in one of the following sections:

  • General call: In any area of International Studies as defined above.
  • Special theme 2022: The role of data in achieving the SDGs, in the context of a post-pandemic recovery.
