Have you ever thought of bringing your research into the extremes found in the polar and high-altitude regions? These areas may not only be of interest for climate researchers, but also for researchers ranging from engineering to social sciences.
The SPI offers tailored support and funding to scientists based in Switzerland who want to work in polar regions and remote, high-altitude environments.
