When and how often can one apply to a National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR)?

The SNSF periodically issues new NCCR calls. Four series of NCCRs have been launched so far (2001, 2005, 2010, 2014). The new call (5th series) was launched in October 2017 and will be open until late autumn 2019. The SNSF informs the Swiss higher education institutions and the other research institutions about the start of a new call at an early stage.
