BRIDGE Discovery: 8th call
|Call for proposal
BRIDGE is a joint programme conducted by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and Innosuisse, the Swiss Innovation Agency. 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 applicants. 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. The maximum total costs must not exceed 850,000 Swiss francs per applicant over four 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 28 February 2024.
The deadline for the submission of full proposals is 13 May 2024.
Further details of the schemes, calls and requirements for the BRIDGE funding programme are available on the BRIDGE website.
