The Leading House Asia supports the exchange of young researchers between Switzerland and Korea.

The Leading House Asia and the National Research Foundation (NRF) of the Republic of Korea jointly fund the exchange of early career scientists between South Korea and Switzerland.

The instrument funds 3-month research stays in the partner country. Switzerland-based researchers can apply to ETH Zurich for a stay in South Korea and Korean researchers to NRF for a stay in Switzerland.

Eligibility: Doctoral students (and in exceptional cases, post-doctoral and Master students) from Swiss universities, universities of applied sciences and public research institutes are invited to apply.

Funding: Grants will cover travel costs and a monthly living allowance for a research stay at a Korean university or research laboratory.
