UNIGE - Leading House


University of Geneva-Leading House for Science & Technology Cooperation

In the framework of the bilateral collaboration strategy of the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI), the University of Geneva (UNIGE) has played the role of "Leading House" for collaboration between Switzerland and Russia since 2008. Since 2017, our mandate also covers Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Mongolia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.

This website provides information about calls for projects in this framework, as well as a project submission and evaluation tool and a forum to promote scientific interactions.

This is a meeting ground for researchers and academics interested in scientific and technological cooperation between Switzerland, Russia, and the other countries included in UNIGE's Leading House mandate. The platform offers online application and evaluation tools for joint projects. It also offers a forum and other features to identify new partners, prepare and implement projects under Leading House calls

On the UNIGE-Leadinghouse platform, you may identify potential partners, build your knowledge networks or research teams, and launch and debate issues. When calls for projects are open, the platform offers an online tool for joint project applications between Swiss and foreign researchers.

The functioning of the Platform depends only on you and fellow users. Once you have registered, you may join an existing group that is of interest to you or set up your own group and invite collaborators and peers. You can also announce events related to your work and reach the audience of the platform. You may also ask to create a sub-site of the UNIGE-Leadinghouse Platform to present your collaboration project. Such sites are hosted on the platform, but they function autonomously.
