Why were the Marie Heim-Vögtlin (MHV) grants discontinued?

General support measures such as coverage of childcare costs or a temporary reduction in working hours are no longer specific to the Marie Heim-Vögtlin grants. They are now available to all SNSF-funded researchers at postdoc level. Cases where researchers exceed the academic age limit due to family care duties have also been taken account of. For this reason, the SNSF will not launch any further calls for MHV.
