Innosuisse and the SNSF are launching the eighth call for proposals for the funding scheme BRIDGE Discovery.

The Discovery funding scheme is aimed at experienced researchers from all disciplines who wish to realise an innovation with great social or economic impact. They can submit a proposal on their own or as part of a consortium of up to three researchers. The project must be characterised by scientific excellence and a clear vision of a future application.

BRIDGE Discovery funds projects for up to four years. Grants cover the salaries of project employees and research costs directly linked to the project.

As of now, interested researchers can submit a letter of intent, which is mandatory for the submission of a full Discovery application, via the mySNF platform. Submission of the letter of intent has been made easier; please refer to the new template available on the BRIDGE website or the submission platform. All letters of intent must be submitted by 28 February 2024.

Discovery full proposals can be submitted via the mySNF platform as of mid-March 2024. The deadline for submission of the full proposal is 13 May 2024.

Further details of the schemes, calls and requirements for the BRIDGE funding programme are available on the BRIDGE website.
