The Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI) and the SNSF are launching the second call for proposals for the funding scheme BRIDGE Discovery.
The funding scheme Discovery is aimed at experienced researchers who wish to realise a technological innovation with great social or economic impact. They can submit a proposal on their own or as part of a consortium of up to three researchers. The project must be characterised by scientific excellence and a clear vision of a future application.
BRIDGE Discovery funds projects for up to four years. Grants cover the salaries of project employees and research costs directly linked to the project.
As of now, interested researchers can submit a letter of intent, which is mandatory for the submission of a full Discovery application, via the mySNF platform. All letters of intent must be submitted by 19 February 2018.
Discovery proposals can be submitted via the mySNF platform as of the end of February 2018. The submission deadline is 16 April 2018.
Further details of the schemes, calls and requirements for the BRIDGE funding programme are available on the BRIDGE website.
