Submissions deadline: 1 April 2020

The Lead Agency process allows researchers in Switzerland and the Czech Republic to submit a joint research proposal to one of the two national funding organisations. The applications must have a joint research question and a joint research plan. 

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 Czech Republic is the eighth country with which the SNSF has signed a Lead Agency agreement. The other countries are Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Poland and Slovenia.
