Submissions are open for the Impact Collaboration Programme (ICP), a funding and support instrument that aims to bridge the gap between international policy in Geneva and academic research globally.
Designed by the Geneva Science-Policy Interface, the ICP is aimed at both scientists willing to channel their research towards policy needs, and international policy professionals looking to ground their work in scientific expertise. It offers a 60 000 CHF grant to accepted projects, as well as interactive support.
Projects must be submitted before 12 February 2023. They must explicitly address a science-policy gap around a specific global policy issue and involve at least:
- One academic partner, that is, anyone formally affiliated with an academic institution anywhere in the world;
- One policy partner based in Geneva. This partner should be attached to a policy-related institution in Geneva, such as an NGO or an international organisation.

The Geneva Science-Policy Interface (GSPI) is an independent platform based at the University of Geneva and backed by leading Swiss and European academic institutions, including CERN. It counts Fabiola Gianotti among its governing board members and Archana Sharma in its steering committee.
