Our scientific opportunities support the community through six distinct modes of operation. Links to proposal templates or on-line submission forms are provided for each individual tool.

Find explanations, forms of applications and an overview of current and past activities.


International Teams consist of 8-15 researchers with complementary scientific expertise, and from several different institutions and countries worldwide. They hold a series of two to three one-week meetings over a period of 18 to 24 months. The aim of Teams is to carry out a research project leading to publications in scientific journals. The activity is directed and organised by a team leader who is also the initiator of the proposal to ISSI. Though in close contact with the scientific staff of the Institute, Teams are largely autonomous in the execution of their project. Teams are set up in response to an Annual Call by ISSI. Proposals are evaluated and prioritised by the Science Committee. 🔭
