270 registrations for the SNSF Advanced Grants 2021
The pre-registration phase for the SNSF Advanced Grants 2021 has ended. Registered researchers now have time until 1 December to submit their proposals.
The SNSF has received 270 pre-registrations for the SNSF Advanced Grants 2021. On average, that's three times more than the number of Swiss-based researchers who applied for European ERC Advanced Grants. In view of the planned budget, the expected large number of applications will result in correspondingly lower funding rates.
Due to Switzerland’s current status of non-associated third-country in Horizon Europe, the SERI has mandated the SNSF to launch this transitional measure. It is aimed at researchers who want to conduct high-risk, high-reward research in Switzerland. The 270 registered researchers now have time until 1 December to submit an application.
