Collaborative projects are research and innovation projects involving consortia with several partners. Mostly, these require at least three organisations from three different EU member states or associated countries.

Units of the central federal administration

SERI cannot directly fund units of the central federal administration. However, as agreed with the Federal Finance Administration (FFA), there is a specific procedure for the funding of projects, described in the following document.

Financial reports

The guidelines for financial reporting are intended for researchers and innovators based in Switzerland who have received funding from SERI to take part in Horizon Europe actions. These guidelines indicate which specific aspects need to be taken into account to ensure that the projects comply with national legislation.

Unless otherwise stipulated in national legislation, SERI will align itself with the funding and calculation principles established by the European Commission, which are fully explained in the Annotated Model Grant Agreement. As a notable exception, for personnel costs the hourly rates and number of hours each person has worked on the project must be reported to SERI. Please consult the ’Guidelines for financial reporting’ for more details.
