  • Science conducted in and around polar and high-altitude regions is critical to understanding the evolution of the Earth’s climate.
  • Due to the complex logistics, challenging access and difficult safety conditions in these extreme environments, the Swiss polar community requires specific competencies and dedicated support.
  • The Swiss Polar Institute (SPI) offers tailored support to scientists based in Switzerland who work in polar regions and remote, high-altitude environments.

2022 Polar Access Fund call for proposals

The SPI has opened its annual Polar Access Fund call for proposals. Dedicated to early-career researchers, this funding instrument offers the unique opportunity to carry out a (first) field campaign in a polar or high-altitude region. If you are a doctoral student or early post-doctoral researcher, this might be the occasion to gain knowledge and experience in fieldwork! The deadline is set on 20 January 2022 at 12:00 (Swiss time).

We invite you to consult the webpage for full information.
