BRIDGE is a joint programme of the Swiss National Science Foundation SNSF and Innosuisse - the Swiss Agency for Innovation Promotion. It offers funding at the interface of basic research and science-based innovation.

BRIDGE consists of two funding schemes:

  • Proof of Concept is aimed at young researchers who want to develop an application or service based on their research results.
  • Discovery is aimed at experienced researchers who want to explore and realise the innovation potential of research results.
