Reduction of teaching commitments

More time for your research

Applicants in the humanities and social sciences can benefit from the pilot project for the reduction of teaching commitments in order to have more time for their SNSF-funded research project. Reductions of one to a maximum of four hours per week per semester (HWS) can be financed for a project of two to four years. Per HWS the SNSF awards a blanket amount of CHF 6000. Any costs that exceed the approved grant will not be covered by the SNSF. The hours affected by the reduction can be distributed across one or two semesters.

Grants for reducing teaching commitments are to be awarded as part of a pilot project starting with the project funding submission date of 1 October 2016 and ending on 1 April 2019.
