Gender Equality in research funding

In pursuit of its goal of achieving gender equality, the SNSF has introduced a variety of measures in research funding. It offers a range of funding schemes for this purpose.

​Women scientists are strongly underrepresented in academic research. To ameliorate this situation, the SNSF offers various targeted measures that facilitate equal opportunities for men and women. Specific funding schemes to support the careers of women researchers and grants towards covering the costs of mentoring programmes for young female researchers are the two main pillars of this policy. The SNSF monitors developments in Switzerland and abroad and adapts its measures in line with changing requirements.
