UZH for Researchers

Sinergia - interdisciplinary, collaborative and breakthrough

The SNSF has integrated the Sinergia program including its budget into the project funding. All types of collaborative projects can be submitted for project funding by October 1 and April 1 of each year.

The Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) awards Sinergia grants for projects that are both collaborative and interdisciplinary and that propose breakthrough research.

The program is geared towards established researchers. At least two and at the most four applicants may submit an application for a Sinergia grant together.

Applicants may be based at various universities or research centres in Switzerland. One applicant may be based outside Switzerland if their expertise is essential and if the overall number of applicants for the relevant proposal is three or four.
