Swiss National Science Foundation Synergia Grant

Sinergia promotes the interdisciplinary collaboration of two to four research groups that propose breakthrough research.

Swiss National Science Foundation Project Funding Grant

With its project funding scheme, the Swiss National Science Foundation enables researchers to independently conduct research projects with topics and goals of their own choice. 

Researchers can apply for funding to cover the costs of research work, staff salaries, scientific collaboration, networking and communication; but their own salaries are not covered.

The funding period ranges from one to four years, with grants starting at CHF 50,000 (minimum amount). Researchers are encouraged to focus on one project and plan it for a four-year period.
