The SPI launches its calls for proposals 2020 for two funding instruments: the SPI Exploratory Grants and the SPI Technogrants in polar and remote high-altitude regions:

  • The SPI Exploratory Grants scheme focuses on funding logistics and field work for Swiss polar researchers as well as the launch of new ideas and collaborations.
  • The SPI Technogrants supports the development and/or improvement of technologies relevant for science in polar regions (and remote high-altitudes).

For both calls, the deadline is set on 19 October 2020, at 12:00 (Swiss time).
