m. Can an SNSF Eccellenza Grant or Professorial Fellowship be extended?

It is generally not possible to extend either an SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowship or an SNSF Eccellenza Grant beyond a duration of 5 years (Article 3 paragraph 5 of the Eccellenza Regulations). Exceptions to this rule are specified in paragraph 7.6 of the General Implementation regulations for the Funding Regulations.
