Young Scientists Fieldwork and Mobility Grants

The State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) is seeking applications for Young Scientists Mobility Grants to develop scientific collaborations between Switzerland and countries of the MENA region.

Mobility represents a strategic element to develop new partnerships between countries.

Through the exchange of students and researchers, higher education institutions can establish new partnerships, thus enlarging their international network.

Mobility grants allows researchers and students to build personal contacts and relationships, which represent the foundation of fruitful and long-lasting collaborations between institutions.

  • Developing individual capacities (human capital),
  • Fostering scientific progress and innovation (scientific prospects),
  • Establishing or enhancing networks between young researchers (networking).
  • The following countries have been identified as priority countries for the first phase of the LHMENA: Egypt, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine, Qatar, Tunisia and the United Arab Emirates.
