Pre-announcement: NCCR call in autumn 2017

Research and Transfer Service

5 September 2017

In the autumn of 2017, the SNSF will launch the call for the 5th series of National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR). The submission deadline for outline proposals will be in February / March 2018, with research expected to start in early 2020.

NCCR fund long-term, high-quality research projects of national significance while promoting the sustainable development of centres of competence and structural capacities at higher education institutions. In addition to federal funds, NCCRs receive funding from higher education institutions, and from third parties.

The Swiss government included the NCCR call in its “Aktionsplan Digitalisierung”. The call is expected to yield initiatives that strengthen basic research in the area of digitalization and that advance new ICT approaches in various fields. Consequently, in the final selection among the applications that have been judged as scientifically and structurally excellent by the SNSF, the Swiss Federation (EAER/SERI) will attach a high priority to applications in line with the goals formulated in the “Aktionsplan Digitalisierung”.
