The 2024 edition of the CROSS program calls upon researchers at EPFL and the University of Lausanne to submit proposals for joint projects that bring the natural sciences and engineering together with the social sciences and humanities.

Through this annual call for projects, CROSS provides competitive grants to support new seed research endeavors that have the potential to grow into fullscale interdisciplinary research projects.

The 2024 CROSS call is open to all topics.


Proposals must come from joint UNIL-EPFL teams, which bring together specialists in the human and social sciences on the one hand, with specialists from life sciences, natural sciences or engineering on the other.

Up to six projects will be selected, with a maximum of CHF 60,000 awarded per project.

  • Deadline for submission: Friday, May 12, 2023
  • Selected projects will be notified no later than July 15, 2023
  • Project start date: January 1, 2024
  • Project completion: by December 31, 2024
