Proposals are to be prepared jointly by the Swiss and Indian applicants. They must be submitted by the Swiss main applicant to the SNSF via its electronic submission system mySNF (www.mysnf.ch). Indian applicants can be given access to the electronic submission system through their Swiss partner. A copy of the application jointly submitted via mySNF should also be submitted to DBT (email@example.com).
Indian researchers are asked to note that all applications must be submitted via the SNSF online system, as indicated above. Applications submitted in India but not via the SNSF online system in Switzerland will not be processed.
No hard copies will be accepted. The call process is highly competitive, therefore an application does not guarantee funding. Only positively rated applications will be considered for funding. Neither the SNSF nor the DBT can be held responsible for non-submission of an application.
After logging in on mySNF, the correct funding scheme must be chosen: Programmes (national and international) > Bilateral Co-operation (Initiatives of the State Secretariat for Education, Re-search and Innovation) > Indo-Swiss Joint Research Programme.
