Indo-Swiss Joint Research Programme


The Indo-Swiss Joint Research Programme (ISJRP) was initiated by the Indian and Swiss governments in 2005 in order to further advance the bilateral cooperation in scientific and technological areas of strategic relevance to both countries. The programme supports cutting-edge research that brings together faculty and young researchers from Switzerland and India. The current ISJRP call for Joint Research Projects (JRPs) is financed by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Re-search and Innovation (SERI) in Switzerland and the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) in India on the principles of reciprocity, parity and activity-matching funding.

The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), mandated by the SERI, and the Department of Biotechnology (DBT) in India jointly launch the call for Joint Research Projects (JRPs), organise the evaluation of the submitted proposals and monitor the funded projects.

To Apply

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​.mys​nf​.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 (vaishalip.​dbt@​nic.​in).

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.
