Lithuanian–Switzerland (Sciex-NMSch)

Lithuanian Scholarships Fund is a part of the Scientific Exchange Programme between the New Member States of the EU and Switzerland (Sciex-NMSch), which aims at contributing to the reduction of economic and social disparities in the enlarged European Union through fostering the scientific capacities of researchers in NMS and promoting sustainable research partnerships between the NMS and Switzerland.

The goal of Scholarships Fund is to stimulate development of Lithuanian researchers’ scientific competences and to support the Lithuanian– Switzerland cooperation in the area of scientific research.

The duration of programme is 2009-2016 and the global budget amounts to ca. 45 million Swiss Francs.

Funding under this programme can be requested for research training placements for promising doctoral candidates (6 to 24 months) and PostDocs (6 to 18 months) as well as for their mentors (in a form of 3 short-term visits – 5 days each) with intention to intensify their cooperation and discuss joint research projects eye to eye. Applicants eligible for participation can be from the new member states and Switzerland itself.
