At present, Switzerland is considered a third country that is not associated to the Horizon Europe programme. The Swiss government has therefore mandated the SNSF to continue its transitional measures “SNSF Advanced Grants” and “SNSF Swiss Postdoctoral Fellowships” in 2022.
The SNSF Advanced Grants 2022 call will open on 1 August, and researchers will have until 1 November 2022 to submit their proposals. These grants are intended for researchers who wanted to apply for an ERC Advanced Grant this year in order to conduct innovative and high-risk research in Switzerland.
For those who intended to apply for an individual fellowship under the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA PF) scheme this year, the SNSF Swiss Postdoctoral Fellowships 2022 call will open on 1 September, and proposals will need to be submitted by 1 December 2022. This transitional measure is intended for young researchers who wish to consolidate their scientific training and pursue their academic career in Switzerland.
As of 1 August and 1 September, respectively, the two calls will open on our website, and all important information will be available there.
