 A total of nine proposals were submitted in response to the call, which was jointly conducted by SNSF and JST. The proposals were peer-reviewed and evaluated by the moderating panel. Based on the funding recommendations made by the moderating panel, SNSF and JST jointly decided on the three successful projects to select for funding.
