The Leading House South America initiates Research projects to strengthen or initiate scientific exchange between researchers from Swiss and Latin American institutions in all disciplines by enabling them to jointly undertake preliminary research and organize meetings, conferences, or workshops.

For the period 2021-2024, the Leading House will support new cooperation endeavors with all potential partners in the region. Therefore, the Leading House opens the call, inviting scholars from Switzerland to propose mono- or interdisciplinary research projects in any Latin American country, involving bilateral or multilateral partnerships.

The call is open to all disciplines and fields. However, this year’s call is restricted to certain SDGs and thematic areas (see Call). Additionally, proposals have to guarantee a direct transfer to society.
