Call for Proposal
The FSM will support a study (overall budget CHF 280’000) in the field of millimeter research. Some of these frequencies in the range of 6 to 60 GHz will be used for 5G services in a few years. We are most interested in proposals that focus on biological issues, i.e. experimental research (in vivo, in vitro and human studies; temperature measurements, the determination of tissue parameters), or numerical modelling (skin und tissue models, dose-modelling). The list is supposed to be indicative. The signals of interest are those that most likely will be used by future 5G applications.
Interested researchers can submit a pre-proposal (please use the form “pre-proposal” to be downloaded from our website). The description has to be very concise (preferably not exceeding two A4 pages).
Deadline for the pre-proposal is January 31, 2020
Outline projects must be submitted on the "Pre-Proposal" form. The outlines will be inspected by the FSM Scientific Committee. The applicants of the selected outline projects will be invited to develop their projects to Full Proposals ("Full-Proposal" form). Applications are invited from public and private research institutions and researcher in Switzerland and abroad.
All public and private research institutions in Switzerland and international may apply for research funding.
In principle, only high quality scientific research which complies with the aims of the research programme will be supported. An exception may be the provision of seed money to start preliminary projects in pioneering fields.
