In the frame of the ERA-NET funding instrument CHIST-ERA (Challenges in Information and Communication Sciences and Technologies ERA-NET), proposals must be submitted by international consortia with research partners in at least three of the following countries: Austria, Belgium (Flanders), France, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Poland, Romania, Switzerland, Turkey, United Kingdom.
The scientific evaluation of the proposals occurs through an international panel. However, each partner of the consortium will be funded separately by their respective national or regional Research Funding Organization.
Swiss researchers must fulfil the eligibility regulations of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) for project funding. Researchers who were never supported by this funding instrument are requested to approach the responsible person from SNSF.
In parallel to the submission of a full proposal to CHIST-ERA, applicants are requested to submit an administrative proposal to the SNSF until the 21 January 2014.
