Why have the Marie Heim-Vögtlin grants been discontinued?

General support measures such as coverage of childcare costs or a temporary reduction in working hours are no longer dependent on having a Marie Heim-Vögtlin grant. They are now available to all SNSF-funded researchers at postdoc level. In addition, all career funding schemes now take account of researchers who exceed the academic age limit because of family care duties. Consequently, the SNSF is not launching any further calls for the Marie Heim-Vögtlin scheme.
