The Helmut Horten Foundation supports projects that pursue innovative research with clinical significance, primarily in the fields of oncology and/or immunology. Purely clinical studies are not supported.

Two project categories are envisaged:

  • Project funding for young researchers.
  • Funding of consortial projects.

Who can apply:
  • Project funding for young researchers: independent group leader, employed at a Swiss University or Research Institute for the entire duration of the project. The start of the project must occur no later than ten years after the applicant has attained his/her highest academic degree.
  • Funding of consortial projects: max. 5 independent group leaders at a Swiss University or Research Institute. Consortial projects are interdisciplinary. They combine clinical and basic scientific approaches to a matter of clinical importance. 

Duration: max. 3 years

Funding: max. CHF 1 million per year for “consortial projects”. In general, the foundation covers the entire project and does not complement funding from other sources.
