Fourth Call for Proposals (IPPs) Fourth Call for Proposals, the Swiss Initiative in Systems Biology, is issuing its Forth Call for Proposals.

The focus of the present Call is on :

  1. Interdisciplinary Pilot Projects (IPPs): innovative projects with a high risk to scientifically fail and / or seed projects. Up to ten Interdisciplinary Pilot Projects (IPP) will be funded.
  2. Interactions between Academia and Industry: Bridge 2 Industry (BIP) and Industrial Sabbaticals in Academia (ISA) projects.



Deadline for submission of proposals for IPP projects is January 15, 2011.

BIP and ISA:

Unlike the IPP projects, submission deadlines for BIP and ISA are more frequent to allow more flexibility in preparing a proposal together with industrial partners. Deadlines for BIP and ISA proposals are as follows (of each year):

  • February 1
  • May
  • August 1
  • November 1

The next deadline for BIP and ISA proposal is November 1, 2010.
