Investigator initiated clinical trials (IICT)

Support for investigator initiated clinical trials

The IICT programme is targeted at researchers who wish to conduct an independent investigator initiated clinical trial. Support will be given to studies on topics that are not in the industry focus and still under-researched.

The SNSF has earmarked a total of 10 million Swiss francs for the 2017 call. This should be sufficient to fund at least four studies.


Submission deadline for letters of intent: 1 September 2017
Submission deadlines for applications: 1 November 2017
