The most important Swiss institution for research funding is the Swiss National Science Foundation. On behalf of the Federation it supports all disciplines - from philosophy and biology to nanosciences and medicine. The funding programmes are open to all scientists active in Switzerland and for basic research the topics are not pre-defined.

For the targeted research, the federal government has additionnally set up two coordinated research programmes. The National Research Programmes (NRP) and the National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR) promote fixed-term projects with clearly defined objectives. Regularly, the federal government publishes calls for which researchers can apply with a project proposal.

The other important funding initiative is the Innovation Promotion Agency CTI. It supports the knowledge and technology transfer between companies and universities. It builds bridges between theory and practice and promotes the development of start-ups.

In addition, there are some other funding opportunities. But getting an overview of all initiatives needs certain know-how and several years of experience in the field of research funding. We would like to help you to get an overview of the national research funding opportunities and to support you in participating in a national R&D programme.

Are you interested? Please contact EUrelations.

„EUrelations hat mich bei der Erarbeitung des IP-Proposals als Koordinator stark unterstützt. Neben der sehr guten und professionellen Zusammenarbeit konnte ich von den Erfahrungen EUrelations sowohl bereits während der Beantragung als auch für zukünftige Proposals nachhaltig profitieren.“
