Alliance Campus Rhodanien


The “Alliance Campus Rhodanien” network was formed in 2017 to strengthen the academic synergies between the University of Geneva (UNIGE), Grenoble Alpes University (UGA), the University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland (HES-SO), the University of Lausanne (UNIL) and the University of Lyon (UdL). The University of Savoie Mont Blanc (USMB) joined the network in 2020.

A joint start-up fund, with each partner managing its own contribution, has been set up to support the development of joint academic projects. During the 2017 call, 13 projects were selected, of which 8 involve UNIL researchers (see below).

An e-mail is sent to the relevant UNIL teaching staff whenever a call is open.

2020 call for projects

The 2020 call for projects aims at fostering the collaboration between partner institutions through the implementation of new projects or the strenghtening of existing projects in the fields of sustainability and/or digitization. The joint start-up fund will support one-year projects, with a funding between CHF 8,000 and 15,000 (EUR 7,500 and 14,000).

At UNIL, the applicant must be a professor, a senior lecturer (Maître d’enseignement et de recherche 1, MER1), or a lecturer (Maître assistant, MA).

More information is available in the call text. The application form is available on the University of Geneva website.

The deadline to submit a project is 3 January 2021.
