The Cluster of Cooperation (CLOC) Knowledge to Action (K2A) in South Asia aims to promote cooperation in research and education to Swiss and South Asian institutions working in sustainable development. K2A’s latest initiative is a mobility grant for early career researchers and senior researchers belonging to universities in Switzerland and South Asia, for projects on environmental sustainability and social wellbeing for advancing SDGs.


The mobility grant is available for early career researchers and senior researchers from the CLOC network universities in South Asia to pursue field work, research and or teaching at a university / institution in another South Asian country or at a Swiss university / institution.

The fund awarded as part of the mobility grant will be dependent on the duration of the research stay.
