University of Geneva

The Princeton University and University of Geneva Collaborative Grants program is designed to provide “seed-corn” support for interactions between researchers at both institutions to build the basis for new research and teaching initiatives and proposals for external funding, to help sustain and expand collaborative activity.

Call for Proposals

Each university will provide its own lead investigator with an equivalent amount of funds that can be spent over the course of the grant period on travel, accommodations, workshops, facilities use and other expenses related to meetings or the preparation of external funding proposals, as specified at the time of the proposal.
