The calls for proposals SPI Exploratory Grants and SPI Technogrants are now open for their 2021 edition.

The SPI Exploratory Grants support Swiss based scientists active in polar regions (including remote high-altitude regions) by allowing them to explore new ideas, fund additional field work or launch new collaborations with financial support targeted at the costs of logistics.

The SPI Technogrants support Swiss groups developing technologies relevant for research in polar regions (and other extreme environments such as remote high-altitude regions). Note that this year’s budget has been increased!

We invite you to read carefully the eligibility rules and the submission information and look forward to your applications. Please, contact the SPI team for any question: .
