The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and the National Natural Science Foundation of China (NSFC) are determined to strengthen and develop the mutually beneficial research cooperation between Switzerland and China and have therefore agreed on launching a joint call for proposals to fund Joint Research Projects (JRPs).
Joint Research Projects (JRPs) allow researchers in Switzerland to collaborate with researchers in China. The SNSF will cover the project costs incurred in Switzerland, and the NSFC the costs in China.

Each proposal for a JRP must have at least one main applicant based in Switzerland and one main applicant based in China; they are the lead scientists on the Swiss and the Chinese side respectively. They bear the main responsibility for the project, including its technical and administrative coordination as well as the timely delivery of scientific and financial reports. Further applicants based in Switzerland and/or in China may also participate in the consortia.
Funding and duration
The maximum budget available for the Swiss side of a project is CHF 350,000 for a 4-year project.
