Horizon Europe

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 as well as the ERC Starting Grant 2022: Horizon Europe Transitional Measures. The Federal Council remains committed to its goal of a full association to Horizon Europe and related programmes and initiatives as soon as possible.

For the ERC Consolidator Grant 2022 the SNSF will launch the SNSF Consolidator Grants 2022 call on 1 March 2022.

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