National Research Programmes (NRPs)

As an instrument of the Swiss Confederation, NRPs provide a mantle for coordinated research projects that pursue a common goal. Their objective is to gain actionable, bottom-up knowledge that can be used to solve current problems facing society, policymakers and the business community. Calls for proposals are published inviting suggestions for topics. The Federal Administration makes a selection and mandates the SNSF to carry out the research programmes.
