SNSF Research Commissions
As of 2021, the evaluation of applications for mobility fellowships as well as Doc.CH grants will be carried out centrally by the SNSF. The evaluation tasks hitherto performed by the local SNSF Research Commissions are therefore no longer required.
The Commissions at ten cantonal universities and the two ETHs have been disbanded with effect from 1 January 2021. They acted as a link between the SNSF and the higher education institutions. This role will not disappear, however, rather it will be continued through various forms of cooperation, particularly regular meetings and information exchanges between the SNSF and the local vice rectors for research and grant offices.
