Visiting Staff Opportunity Program (VSOP)
at the Swiss Institute for Art Research, Zurich, Switzerland

The program is aimed at promoting the cooperation and exchange of expertise between members and institutes of RIHA.

Staff members with an academic background are to be given the opportunity to spend a short or even prolonged period of time as guests of another institute. The ARIAH Institutes will also participate in this programme. Participation is restricted to staff members of these institutes. Agreements regarding the implementation of the Visiting Staff Opportunity Program (VSOP) will be made between the two participating institutes.

Please apply to the director of your institute, if you wish to participate in VSOP.

Projects may last from one week to one year. The Swiss Institute for Art Research has a 4-bedroom apartment for two people in a building adjacent to the institute, which it will make available to visiting scholars.
