Coronavirus: Innosuisse - Innovation Projects updates

Research and Transfer Service

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic,  many innovation projects are experiencing delays and other difficulties. Innosuisse is aware of this situation and would like to offer simple and unbureaucratic assistance in these cases, during this critical period.

For projects currently underway and those approved by 31 March 2020, the following project change types may be applied for individually or in combination for projects where the continuation of work is acutely at risk or even impossible due to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Project extension without budget implications;
  • Project changes with possible budget implications up to the contractually approved cost ceiling due to:
    • Shifts of work packages between research and
      implementation partners
    • Additional work directly related to the COVID-19
      pandemic
  • Reduction or waiver of any cash contribution not yet made by the implementation partner.

Requests for project changes due to Covid-19 can be made online.

Regularly updated Frequently Asked Questions  are published on the Innosuisse webpage.
