Category Call for proposal

Congressi Stefano Franscini (CSF) is ETH Zurich’s conference platform located at Monte Verità, a beautiful hilltop overlooking Ascona and Lake Maggiore in Southern Switzerland (Ticino).

Every year, the CSF gives researchers and university professors the opportunity to organize a 3-5 day international conference on any disciplines for 50-120 international senior and junior researchers at the Monte Verità congress centre, with funding from ETHZ and the SNSF. The conference must be open to all interested and qualified persons and address a scientific public as wide as possible. CSF expects a reasonable percentage of women amongst the invited speakers.

Note that hybrid events, where few participants are not onsite, are also supported. However, the majority of the participants must be onsite to benefit from the intensive personal exchange that CSF offers.

Who can apply:

  • The call is open to researchers at all career levels.
  • Applications must be submitted by at least one PI and one co-applicant.
  • The PI must be based at a Swiss research institution.
  • The co-applicant can be based abroad. International collaborations are welcome.

Funding: please have a look at the Terms and conditions for Conferences. Note that the grant can also be used to cover childcare costs for children accompanying the organisers/speakers.

Deadline: 30 October 2021
Decision: by the beginning of December 2021
The conference must be held between February and November 2023.

A second call for the remaining dates in 2023 will be opened with the deadline January 15, 2022 later this year with the decisions communicated by March 2022.

For further information and application, please refer to the call web page, online application platform, terms and conditions, application form + appendix, composition of the scientific board and supported conferences.
