Applicants entering the process with a full proposal may contact their national contacts before 18 September, 2020 to receive guidance, advice or partner search support.

The joint call focuses on research and development ranging from experimental proof of concept to technology demonstrated in relevant environment, leading to innovative solutions, which are considerably differentiated from comparable existing solutions in the market in terms of their functions, parameters or other features. They shall provide added economic, societal or environmental values, which have a significant market potential for Brasil and Switzerland.
