Part of project funding
The Lead Agency process forms part of the SNSF's project funding scheme. There is no additional budget for such applications and they are governed by the same provisions as project funding proposals.
The South Tyrol is the ninth country with which the SNSF has signed a Lead Agency agreement. The other countries are Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Poland, Slovenia and the Czech Republic.
