Horizon Europe: SNSF transitional measures 2022

The Swiss government has mandated the SNSF to continue its transitional measures “SNSF Advanced Grants” and “SNSF Swiss Postdoctoral Fellowships” in 2022.


The SNSF Advanced Grants 2022 call will open on 1 August, with the deadline on 1 November 2022. These grants are intended for researchers who wanted to apply for an ERC Advanced Grant this year in order to conduct innovative and high-risk research in Switzerland.


The SNSF Swiss Postdoctoral Fellowships call 2022 will open on 1 September, and applicants will need to submit their proposals by 1 December 2022. This transitional measure is intended for young researchers who wish to consolidate their scientific training and pursue their academic career in Switzerland.
