University of Basel

Swiss National Science Foundation / External Funding / University Fund

The central office for the administration of external funding assists University of Basel staff with the management of external funding, awards and grants.

In addition to contributions from the public sector, the University of Basel is also funded through contributions from third parties. Fundraising for these contributions is usually conducted by university staff and used primarily for research. A portion of the external funding is raised through research proposals submitted to certain government institutions (Swiss National Science Foundation, State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation). Another portion of external funding comes from the private sector and other federal agencies (applied and results-oriented research in the sense of commissioned research). The funds raised are used as stipulated in contracts or agreements. Examples of funding managed by the university:

  • Swiss National Science Foundation
  • State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI)
  • Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN)
  • European Union
  • Private sector
  • Foundations and associations

Additional fiduciary and legally independent foundations along with individual service accounting and conference events are financially managed as well. All information (deposits, withdrawals, accounting documents of the organizational units) are processed, archived and stored centrally. The central administrative body for external funding currently employs six persons (550 percent by position) and guarantees the proper and timely processing of transactions. The recorded accounting transactions from third party contributions are mapped onto requests for the decentralized accounting officers authorized in the SAP system (in contrast to this, the transactions from public sector contributions are allocated to the cost centers).
