Investigator initiated clinical trials (IICT)

Support for investigator initiated clinical trials

​The IICT programme is targeted at researchers who wish to conduct an investigator initiated clinical trial. Support will be given to trials that address a documented unmet medical need and are of value to the patients but not in industry focus.

The SNSF has earmarked a total of 10 million Swiss francs for the 2019 call. The aim is to fund at least four studies.
