Innovations in research funding

The SNSF is adapting its funding schemes to offer a clearer, simpler and more needs-oriented range of funding opportunities to researchers. First, it is making changes to the Sinergia programme in time for the next submission deadline on 1 June 2016. Changes to project funding, the main funding scheme of the SNSF, will be implemented by October 2016 at the earliest. Another area of innovation will be the career funding schemes, where changes will be introduced in 2017 at the earliest. The SNSF will communicate details of the innovations in good time.
