The University of St. Gallen calls application for Seed Money Grants 2020. The goal of the Seed Money Grants is to strengthen or initiate a scientific exchange between researchers from Swiss and Latin American institutions in all disciplines by enabling them to jointly undertake preliminary research and organize meetings, conferences, or workshops. SMGs are particularly useful to develop new joint project proposals or to connect already existing and independently funded projects in Switzerland and the Latin American partner countries for long-lasting cooperation.

In order to strengthen initiatives to achieve the 2030 Agenda for Development, the LH this year’s call focuses on the following four specific SDGs

  • Sustainable Development Goal 3: Good health and well-being
  • Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
  • Sustainable Development Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation
  • Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
  • Sustainable Development Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities
  • Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
  • Sustainable Development Goal 13: Climate action
  • Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts


SMGs fund projects with a maximum of CHF 25,000. The grant will be disbursed in two installments: 80% upon signing the grant contract and 20% after approval of the final report. Seed Money Grants are particularly useful to develop joint project proposals to submit to large funding agencies in Latin America, Switzerland, and Europe or to combine already existing and independently funded projects in Switzerland and the partner countries in order to create long-lasting cooperation.

However, all expenses must be justified and related to the proposed research activities. Financial contributions from each side of the partnership and in-kind contributions are expected – likewise third-party contributions, if applicable and should be detailed in the Application Form.
