The Impact Collaboration Programme (ICP) is a unique funding instrument intended to spot, support and scale collaborations that contribute to strengthening science-informed policymaking and producing policy-relevant research and tools. The scheme facilitates opportunities for collaboration between Geneva-based international policy institutions and scientific institutions, in Switzerland and beyond.

What does the ICP offer?
• Maximum 60,000 CHF per project (seed funding, max project duration 18 months)
• Tailored support and advice to help maximise impact
• A learning framework to elicit knowledge and build capacity in science-policy collaboration

Who is eligible?
Collaboration projects with minimum 2 partners:
- one academic institution (no geographical limitation, main applicant on the academic side must hold a PhD and work as researcher or equivalent).
- one Intergovernmental organisation (IO) from International Geneva. Other institutions such as international NGOs, global networks, think tanks, platforms, funds, boundary organisations, diplomatic missions, etc, can also apply to the ICP provided their project directly involves an Intergovernmental Organisation.

- Submitted initiatives should explicitly address a science-policy gap around a global issue of relevance to the work of International Geneva actors.
