Due to Switerland's status as a non-associated third country in the Horizon Europe programme, the federal government mandated the SNSF to launch the SNSF Advanced Grants funding scheme again for 2023.
It is aimed at researchers who intended to apply for an ERC Advanced Grant. The scheme is open to all research disciplines and topics. Scientists of any nationality who want to pursue innovative, high-risk research in Switzerland can apply for an SNSF Advanced Grant.
SSNSF Advanced Grants are awarded up to a maximum of CHF 1.9 million for a period of up to 5 years.
On Tuesday 12 December, from 12.00 to 13.00, an online information session will be held on the transitional measure “SNSF Advanced Grants 2023” set up by the SNSF on behalf of the Swiss Confederation.
Interested researchers will receive information on our call and will have the opportunity to take part in a Q&A session following the presentation.
After the event, the relevant slide presentations will be made available on the web page of the SNSF Advanced Grants.
To submit an application to the SNSF, you need a written confirmation from the research institution (template is available on mySNF).
At UZH, you will receive the confirmation letter via the approval process in AVA, the UZH third-party funding platform.
Please contact the responsible persons at the institute, seminar or clinic at an early stage.
You can register on AVA with your UZH login (short name and password).
If you do not (yet) have a UZH login, an administrative employee of the host institution can enter the project data in AVA on your behalf and then send you the confirmation letter.
Alternatively, a guest UZH login can be requested via the institute's IT manager.
Once the approval process has been completed, you can download the confirmation letter as a PDF.
