SNSF Starting Grant 2022

The SNSF Starting Grants 2022 target researchers who wanted to apply for a 2022 ERC Starting Grant or for an SNSF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowship.

Grantees will have the opportunity of leading an independent research project and directing a team of researchers in Switzerland. An SNSF Starting Grant comes after several years of research after the PhD, qualification equivalent to a PhD, or medical degree during which grantees have already achieved scientific independence and contributed to impactful research in their field. Proposals will be evaluated in two stages by international expert panels similar to those established for the ERC Starting Grants.

Interested researchers have time to submit their proposal until 1 February 2022.
