b) I am a Principal Investigator (PI) with an SNSF Starting/Consolidator grant. Can I flexibly choose between a Swiss or a EU-member state host institution for my grant, and does the grant imply any restrictions?

​Yes, you are free to choose between a Swiss or a EU-member state host institution. The only restriction is that the host institution must employ the PI for at least the duration of the project. The work-time percentage will depend on how much time the PI will devote to the project, but it must be at least 50%. Furthermore, he/she must spend at least 50% of his/her total working time in Switzerland or in an EU member or associated state.
