The SNSF offers great mobility opportunities either for visits abroad or scientific events in Switzerland. Take advantage of the schemes “Mobility grants in projects” (for PhD students employed on a SNSF grant) and “Scientific exchanges” (experienced researchers): submission possible all year round!
BRIDGE Proof of Concept helps young researchers (MA, PhD, Postdoc) to apply their research results and gain the confidence needed to make a market entry.Grants are awarded for a duration of 12 months and cover salary of the applicant as well as employees plus some research funds.
The ERC Proof of Concept grants aim to maximise the value of the excellent research that the ERC funds, by funding further work to verify the innovation potential of ideas arising from ERC funded projects.
Mobility grants in projects are aimed at doctoral students who wish to improve their scientific profile by going abroad while being employed in an ongoing SNSF research project.A mobility grant can cover travel and living costs as well as fees for conferences and workshops for 6-12 months.
Scientific exchanges grants offered by the SNSF support scientific events (meetings, conferences or workshops) or research stays of 1-6 months in Switzerland or abroad.PhD students are not eligible for these grants.
