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: 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.

The SNSF Advanced Grants 2022 call has been launched on 1st August, and the call deadline to submit proposals is on 1 November 2022, pre-registration is required by 1st October 2022.

The SNSF Swiss Postdoctoral Fellowships 2022 call will open on 1 September, and the call deadline to submit proposals is on 1 December 2022.

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