CTI R&D Projects Special measures 2016

Research and Transfer Service

3 May 2016

In R&D projects the conditions for export-oriented SMEs (implementation partner) may be relaxed on request. The Federal Council has requested a further CHF 61 million from Parliament for these special measures, which run from mid-2016 to the end of the year.

The measures are as follow:

  • The cash contribution made by the implementation partner to the research partner may be partially or wholly waived (usually 10% of the CTI funding contribution)
  • The proportion of the total project costs met by the implementation partner may be reduced to 30% (usually >50%).

Only export-oriented SMES and their suppliers in Switzerland may apply for these reductions, submitting a proposal from 2 May 2016 to 31 October 2016.

The requested additional 61 million francs in funding are still to be formally approved by the parliament, but applicants can already submit their proposal, which will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Please note that if the parliament will approve this credit (which is highly probably), then the 20% contribution from the Canton Ticino to the salary costs of the implementation partner will be suspended.

Application form and details are available on the CTI website. For further information, please contact Ms. Dafne Pedrazzoli.
