The goal of the Seed Money Grants is to strengthen or initiate scientific exchange between researchers from Swiss and Latin American institutions in all disciplines by enabling them to jointly undertake preliminary research and organize meetings, conferences, or workshops.
Seed Money Grants are particularly useful to develop joint project proposals to be submitted to large funding agencies in Latin America, Switzerland, and Europe or to combine already existing and independently funded projects in Switzerland and the partner countries in order to create long lasting cooperation.
For the period 2017-2020, the Leading House (in this case, Centro Latinoamericano-Suizo de la U. de St. Gallen) will support new cooperation endeavors with all potential partners in the region.
