UZH for Researchers

Call: SNSF Starting Grant 2024

The Swiss National Science Foundation has launched the SNSF Starting Grant call 2024.

Deadline: 1 February 2024

Due to Switzerland’s status as a non-associated third country in the Horizon Europe programme, the federal government mandated the SNSF to launch the funding scheme "SNSF Starting Grants 2024". This integrative call is a transitional measure covering the ERC Starting Grants 2024 as well as the former SNSF funding schemes Eccellenza and PRIMA.


An SNSF Starting Grant comes after several years of research after the PhD, or an equivalent qualification or medical degree, during which time the grantees have already conducted research independently and contributed to impactful research in their field.

Deadline: 1 February 2024
