The Collaborative Research on Science and Society (CROSS) program facilitates interdisciplinary projects that address pressing societal and technological issues and that are carried out jointly by researchers at EPFL and UNIL.
Through an annual call, CROSS provides competitive grants to support new seed research endeavors that have the potential to grow into full-scale interdisciplinary research projects.
CROSS launches its 10th Call for Proposals!
The theme for the 2022 Call for CROSS Projects is: Responsible Innovation.
CROSS welcomes proposals dealing with responsible innovation by means of interdisciplinary research collaboration. Proposals must come from joint UNIL-EPFL teams, which bring together specialists in the human and social sciences on the one hand, with specialists from life sciences, natural sciences or engineering on the other. Projects are encouraged to involve stakeholders of innovation, citizens and other concerned groups in the research process.
Up to six projects will be selected, with a maximum of CHF 60,000 awarded per project.
Submissions until September 17, 2021.
