SNSF Advanced Grants 2022

Grants for leading researchers who want to conduct innovative, high-risk research in Switzerland.

Important: the call for proposals opens on 1 August 2022 on mySNF.

Switzerland is still considered a non-associated third country in the Horizon Europe programme. On behalf of the federal government, the SNSF is launching a new call for its transitional measure "SNSF Advanced Grants" in 2022, aimed at researchers who intended to apply for an ERC Advanced Grant.

The call is open for applicants of any nationality who want to pursue innovative, high-risk research in Switzerland. The applicants must have a track record of outstanding research over the past ten years and must be recognised leaders in their fields.

Applicants whose projects were rejected in the first step of evaluation for SNSF Advanced Grants 2021 are not eligible to take part in this year’s call. However, researchers whose applications were rejected only in the second step of the evaluation are eligible to apply for a grant in 2022. The same rules apply in the calls for ERC Advanced Grants.
