Is the overhead contribution transferred to the new research institution if I change research location?

No, the overhead contribution remains with the university or research institution originally entitled to it. What is crucial here are the circumstances at the time of the acceptance. The SNSF, in conjunction with the universities, chose a simple model for the introductory phase of the overhead contributions which did not include retroactive or compensatory adjustments. The universities are, thus, at liberty to arrange a transfer of overhead contributions among themselves.
