m) Can I include a research group based abroad in my Sinergia consortium?

​Yes, Sinergia projects can include at most one research group based abroad if the Sinergia consortium consists of at least 3 applicants, and provided no researchers in Switzerland with similar expertise is available. Like the Swiss groups involved in the project, the group based abroad may receive a grant enabling it to carry out the research work necessary for the success of the Sinergia project.
