Euresearch is the Swiss network mandated by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation to providing targeted information, hands-on advice and transnational partnering related to European research and innovation programmes. The current EU Framework Programme Horizon 2020 runs from 2014 to 2020 with almost 80 billion Euros of funding available to research groups throughout Europe.
The network is composed of a Network Office in Bern, Regional Offices at each University and (Swiss) Federal Institute of Technology, Contact Points at the Universities of Applied Science and local SME contact points.
Our partner Swiss Core is the Swiss Contact Office for European Research, Innovation and Education (SwissCore) and a branch office of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) in Brussels.
