Call 2024: Collaborative Research on Science and Society (CROSS)
The CROSS Program is the result of an agreement signed between the EPFL and the University of Lausanne (UNIL) with the aim of encouraging interdisciplinary projects that deal with current issues in society and technology, associating specialists in the human and social sciences on the one hand, with specialists in the life sciences, natural sciences or engineering on the other.
Through this annual call for projects, CROSS provides competitive grants (up to 60'000 CHF per project) to support new seed research endeavors that have the potential to grow into full–scale interdisciplinary research projects.
Until now, the annual call for projects was always launched on a particular topic (2013 Energy, 2014 Memory, 2015 Circulation, 2016 Perceptions, 2017 Traces, 2018 Imitation, 2019 Resistance, 2020 Mobility, 2021 Digital, humanities, 2022 Responsible innovation, 2023 Crisis).
The 2024 CROSS call is open to all topics.
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.
Up to six projects will be selected, with a maximum of CHF 60,000 awarded per project.
