According to the 2020 Federal Decree on the Horizon Package, SERI can directly fund researchers and innovators in Switzerland who have not received funding from the European Commission because Switzerland is not associated to the respective programmes (see Transitional Measures). This applies to collaborative and mono-beneficiary projects.

Mono-beneficiary projects 2021

The proposals for the ERC Starting and Consolidator Grants as well as the EIC Accelerator of the 2021 calls were evaluated by the European Commission on an exceptional basis without Switzerland being associated to Horizon Europe. Therefore, SERI can award ‘SERI-funded ERC Starting Grants’, ‘SERI-funded ERC Consolidator Grants’ or ‘SERI funded-EIC Accelerator Grants’ (see Mono-beneficiary projects 2021). If they carry out their project in Switzerland, researchers and innovators with a successfully evaluated project receive direct funding from SERI under the same conditions as those of the European Commission (e.g. regarding project budget and project duration).

SERI-funded ERC Starting and Consolidator Grants

"SERI-funded ERC Starting and Consolidator Grants" (listed below) are awarded for positively evaluated project proposals of the ERC Starting and Consolidator Grants 2021 that are carried out at a host institution in Switzerland. This direct funding by SERI enables cutting-edge research in all fields, based on scientific excellence that has proven itself in international competition. Not only does it support basic research in Switzerland, the funding also contributes to the attractiveness of Switzerland as a research location. The Starting Grants are aimed at talented researchers who want to start their own independent career and establish their own working group, while the Consolidator Grants serve to strengthen existing independence.
