Second call for proposals for NRP 76

The second call is specifically aimed at projects that can fill the remaining research gaps.

The Swiss National Science Foundation approved 22 projects from among the applications submitted during the first call for NRP 76. Although the funded projects cover a wide range of research topics, a few research gaps still remain. The aim behind this second call is to fill these gaps.

The call focuses on the following topics:

  • Interactions between non-state actors and the state;
  • Rights, proceedings, legal remedies;
  • Economic entanglements;
  • Transgenerational transmission of social, material and psychological disadvantages;
  • Removal of children and adoptions in coercive situations.

A budget of 2.5 million Swiss francs has been made available for this second call. This will provide funding for six to eight projects.

Submission deadlines for letters of intent and proposals

Interested researchers have time until 22 August 2018 to submit a letter of intent (see template below). The letter of intent will be examined in order to ensure that the proposed project is compatible with the objectives of NRP 76 and the second call.

Full research proposals must be submitted by 15 November 2018 at 5 p.m.
