a) What are "independent" publication grants?

The SNSF awards grants to cover the production costs of digital book publications that were not produced in SNSF-funded research projects. Known as "independent" grants, they are financed under the funding scheme "Publication grants".

Grants to cover the production costs of book publications in the context of SNSF-funded research projects should be requested in the project proposal. After the end of the project, it is no longer possible to request an "independent" publication grant for such book publications.
