Responding to the second call for proposals, 30 young researchers submitted an application for an Ambizione Energy Grant. A further 17 researchers applied for an Assistant Professor (AP) Energy Grant.

​The response to the second call for proposals for the schemes designed to promote young energy researchers has been similar to the year before (2013: 29 applications for an Ambizione Energy Grant and 15 applications for an AP Energy Grant).

Of the applications for an Ambizione Energy Grant, 59% came from the ETH Domain (EPFL, ETHZ, PSI), 34% from the universities and 7% from the universities of applied sciences. 65% of the projects are linked to a Competence Center for Energy Research (SCCER).

Of the applications for an AP Energy Grant, 41% came from the ETH Domain, 18% from the universities and 41% from the universities of applied sciences. 82% of the projects are linked to a Competence Center for Energy Research (SCCER).

The SNSF will finish evaluating the proposals by May 2015. Researchers whose proposal have been approved will be able to start their projects on 1 June 2015 at the earliest.
