BRIDGE Proof of Concept: special call 2022 for BSc & MSc graduates
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 organisations.
BRIDGE Proof of Concept projects support young researchers (see eligibility criteria on the website) who aim to develop an application or service based on their own research findings. These projects may feature any type of innovation or research field.
BRIDGE is launching a special call in June 2022 exclusively for applicants with a Bachelor’s or a Master’s degree. Approximately 1 million francs have been made available for the call.
