The FLASH Research Programme was a funding instrument that allowed researchers to quickly react in case of exceptional events (of natural, societal or political nature) by setting up joint research projects between partners from Brazil or India and Switzerland.

The FLASH Research Programme aimed at:

  • promoting the production of original scientific results linked to an exceptional event
  • facilitating research that requires information that cannot be gathered under normal conditions
  • intensifying scientific cooperation between Swiss scientists and those in the focus countries
  • establishing research partnerships of mutual interest and benefits
