The European Union provides various funding programs that are publicly advertised and open to scientists of any nationality.

Horizon Europe at present

Switzerland is currently considered a non-associated third country for the submission of proposals in Horizon Europe. With this status, researchers in Switzerland can still participate in most collaborative projects. The Swiss project partner will be funded by SERI (State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation) during the whole lifetime of the project. Participation in mono-beneficiary instruments (individual ERC grants, MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships, MSCA COFUND and EIC Accelerator) is by principle excluded as a non-associated third country. SERI has mandated the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) to implement suitable transition solutions. Transitional solutions have already been implemented for ERC Advanced Grant 2021 and the MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships: Horizon Europe Transitional Measures. Should applicants with Swiss host institution not be eligible for the ERC Starting and Consolidator Grant calls in 2022, transitional measures will be implemented likewise. The Federal Council remains committed to its goal of a full association to Horizon Europe.

For further information on the situation, please visit the Horizon Europe website of the SERI.
