SNSF - Weave
Servizio ricerca e trasferimento del sapere
Submission deadline: 3 Ottobre 2022
Submission deadline: 3 October, 2022
The SNSF and European research funders have signed a multilateral agreement to further simplify the submission of research projects with partners abroad.
Weave is a multilateral agreement, which enables collaborative projects under the same framework conditions with all participating countries and simplifies the submission of joint applications by centralising evaluation at a single agency. This scheme enables trilateral projects.
Researchers submitting to the SNSF will need to meet the SNSF deadlines of 1 April and 1 October, the others the deadlines announced by the agency abroad. Moreover, trilateral projects are also possible now.
Part of SNSF project funding
Both the existing Lead Agency agreement and the Weave agreement are embedded in the SNSF's project funding scheme. There is no additional budget and the usual project funding requirements apply. For instance, researchers may only submit a Lead Agency application if there are no thematic overlaps with applications under evaluation at the SNSF or with ongoing projects.
Up until now, eleven European countries or regions have signed the Weave agreement:
- Belgium (Flanders)
- Belgium (Wallonia)
- Czech Republic
The bilateral Lead Agency agreements with France, Sao Paulo, South Africa and South Tyrol will remain in place without any changes.
