ISSI/ISSI-BJ 2024 Joint Call for Proposals for International Teams in Space and Earth Sciences

The International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern and ISSI-BJ in Beijing invite proposals for International Team projects in the fields of Space Sciences and Earth Sciences.


The 2024 call for ISSI/ISSI-BJ International Teams has just been released, with a proposal deadline of March 14, 2024.

The 2024 call for ISSI/ISSI-BJ International Teams is open to all scientists, regardless of nationality or institutional affiliation. The scientists must be involved in any of the following research fields:

  • Space Sciences: Astrobiology, Astrophysics and Cosmology, Fundamental Physics in Space, Magnetospheric and Space Plasma Physics, Planetary Sciences, Solar and Heliospheric Physics, and Solar-Terrestrial Sciences.
  • Earth Sciences using space data. This includes understanding and modelling Earth system processes, as well as climate change projections.

To be eligible for this funding for collaborative research projects, the projects submitted must involve the analysis of space mission data. They may also draw on complementary ground-based data and/or theoretical modelling where this adds scientific value. An inter-disciplinary approach to tackling the underlying research question is strongly encouraged.

ISSI hosts International Teams in an open and interactive atmosphere. They provide high quality facilities and support the local expenses of meeting participants through the provision of accommodation and a per diem.
