Ambizione enables young researchers in all disciplines to start doing independent research. The grants are aimed at young researchers who wish to conduct, manage and lead an independent project at a Swiss higher education institution.

The Ambizione funding period is four years. Ambizione is also open to young researchers with non-professorial research positions offering career prospects. As a result, applicants can request Ambizione grants with or without a salary.

The newly introduced data management plan (DMP) for the lifecycle of the research results is an integral part of any Ambizione research proposal. The DMP is a long-term plan, showing how the data are produced, collected, documented, published and archived. In addition, the SNSF expects Ambizione grant holders to allow open access to all of the underlying data of a publication, unless prevented by legislation or ethical rules.
