Open Calls

Term has only just started, and a range of exciting calls are currently open. Many UniFr researchers will already have their eye on the next deadline for the SNSF Project Funding (3.4.2024), and we encourage them to get in touch with the SPR for support with their proposals. The very final call for Doc.CH is looming with a deadline on 15.03.2024, and for those researchers who are currently part of a COST Action, the upcoming SNSF COST call (19.04.2024) may be of interest. Those in need of expensive research equipment should take note of the R’Equip call which is likely running for the last time until 02.05.2024. Furthermore, proposals can still be submitted to the two National Research Programme calls entitled "Plant Breeding Innovation" (NRP 84) and "Gender Medicine and Health" (NRP 83) until 14.03.2024. The list of the SNSF currently open calls is available here.

Numerous Horizon Europe calls are currently open in the thematic clusters, particularly those connected to Mobility and (Clean) Energy topics. The complete list can be found here. Don’t forget to check our “Open Calls” page regularly, and click on “subscribe” to add the various calls to your electronic calendar and never miss another deadline.
