Ambizione - first call following innovations in funding scheme

Ambizione enables young researchers in all disciplines to start doing independent research. The grants are aimed at young researchers who wish to conduct, manage and lead an independent project at a Swiss higher education institution.

Along with other innovations to its funding schemes, the SNSF has decided to extend the Ambizione funding period from currently three to four years in the future. Ambizione is now also open to young researchers with non-professorial research positions offering career prospects. As a result, applicants can request Ambizione grants with or without a salary.
