[ BRIDGE DISCOVERY – 4th CALL | Research funding ]
BRIDGE is a joint programme conducted by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and Innosuisse. It offers new funding opportunities at the intersection of basic research and science-based innovation, thereby supplementing the funding activities of the two organizations.
BRIDGE Discovery is aimed at experienced researchers who wish to realise a technological innovation with great social or economic impact. They can submit a proposal on their own or as part of a consortium of up to three researchers. The project must be characterised by scientific excellence and a clear vision of a future application.
BRIDGE Discovery funds projects for up to 4 years. Grants cover the salaries of project employees and research costs directly linked to the project.
As of now, interested researchers can submit a letter of intent, which is mandatory for the submission of a full Discovery application, via the mySNF platform.
All letters of intent must be submitted by 24 February 2020.
The deadline for the submission of full proposals is 11 May 2020 (extended from 27 April 2020).
Further details of the schemes, calls and requirements for the BRIDGE funding programme are available on the BRIDGE website www.bridge.ch.
