0a) Can I get a cost-neutral extension for my SNSF-funded project beyond the original end date?

As far as possible, the research activity should be organised in a way that enables you to keep to the schedule and the budget of the SNSF grant. Should your project nevertheless be delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, you can of course apply for an extension.

Researchers whose project ends before 31 December 2020 will get a cost-neutral extension of a maximum of six months. You can simply inform us about such an extension using the "Messages/Requests" form in your project on mySNF. Transmitting the message is sufficient, you do not need to submit an application.

For projects that end after 31 December 2020, please transmit an application for a cost-neutral extension two to four months before the end of your project.
