Funding and Implementation Regulations

The Funding and the Implementation Regulations provide the legal basis for all funding schemes of the SNSF. In their revised form (FR2016 and IR2016), they have been in force since 1 January 2016.​

Rules that apply to all funding schemes and procedures are governed by the Funding Regulations of the SNSF. They are based directly on the Federal Research and Innovation Promotion Act (RIPA).​

The Implementation Regulations contain detailed provisions that set out how the principles stipulated in the Funding Regulations are implemented for all funding schemes. Since 2 October 2019, new provisions regulating the employment of staff have been in force.

There are also separate Regulations for the individual funding schemes.​
