Collaborative Projects

The main goal of this initiative is to create new bridges between research groups in different academic institutions. Furthermore, this program is a great opportunity to provide innovative preliminary research results that can be used to reach for other sources of funding.

Apply Now – deadline: June 30th


  • The research projects must fit into the scientific program of the QCAM
  • The research proposal must be conducted in collaboration with at least two regular members of the CQMF/QCAM from at least two (2) different academic institutions;
  • The awarded grant must be used over a period of two (2) years and it will not be renewable;
  • Each funded research project will receive a total amount of $20 000 from the CQMF/QCAM divided over two (2) years;

How to submit?

  • A document of three (3) pages maximum (free format) describing the transdisciplinary project, the complementarity of the research team, the anticipated benefits, the relevance of this project for the QCAM and a realistic budget.
  • Please submit the required documents no later than June 30, 2020 (see the report template for more details).
  • The final report is due two months after the end of 2nd year of the grant.
