Participation of Switzerland in Horizon Europe

For the time being, Switzerland can only participate in the first calls of the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon Europe as a non-associated third country ('associated partner').

Participation in individual funding lines (e.g. ERC grants, MSCA Postdoctoral Fellowships) is currently not possible for institutions from Switzerland. Special regulations apply to the already closed calls for ERC grants.

For participation in calls for proposals in collaborative research, participation of Swiss institutions is possible, but only as a non-associated third country. Thus, they do not receive funding from Horizon Europe, cannot act as coordinators and are not counted in the minimum participation rule.

The Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) has compiled information on the participation and funding of Swiss institutions in Horizon Europe on its own website.
