SNSF Project Funding


Project funding can be requested by applicants who receive a salary from their home institution but who still need additional funds to carry out their research project. The applicants’ own salaries are not covered by the project funding scheme.

Research in all disciplines

Project funding is aimed at experienced researchers working in Switzerland who wish to obtain funding for a project of their own. The research topic can be chosen freely.

The grants cover direct costs such as salaries of collaborators, materials, travel as well as other expenses. The costs of publication in a purely Open Access journal as well as the production costs of scientific book publications that are digital and Open Access are also covered by the grant and must be requested when the project proposal is submitted.
