The second call for proposals for the Science and Technology for Humanitarian Action Challenge, in collaboration with ETH-Zürich and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). As a reminder the funding available amounts to CHF 100-300k per project, which can be more than doubled if a partnership with ETH-Zürich is involved.
To facilitate your participation in this call, we invite you to an information session.

Against the backdrop of rising numbers of displaced people due to conflict and insecurity and extreme climate events, the challenges faced by humanitarian organizations and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in particular are immense and increasingly complex. To foster new solutions, EPFL and ETH Zurich have joined forces with the ICRC and launched the Science and Technology for Humanitarian Action Challenges program. The aim of this program is to develop effective and innovative solutions enhancing the impact of humanitarian action. The deadline of the next call for proposals is Thursday 15 July 2021 (17:00 CEST). An information session will be held on:
