Latest updates for Researchers

 

  Horizon Europe: Switzerland has currently a third country status

Switzerland will be treated as a non-associated third country in the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe, until further notice. Researchers in Switzerland can still participate in calls for proposals under the status, albeit to a limited extent, and receive funding directly from the Confederation. However, participation in individual projects, in particular in future calls for proposals from the European Research Council, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and the European Innovation Council, is no longer possible.

The Federal Council’s stated aim remains Switzerland’s full association to Horizon Europe. (SERI announcement, 14.7.2021)

SERI updates regularly a factsheet and some FAQ about Swiss participation in Horizon Europe and related programmes and initiatives on its website.
