Research support

This section of the website is dedicated to Research Support and provides USI and SUPSI researchers with:

  • Information on all open calls for research projects and information events;
  • Specific information on each funding programme for PhD students, postdocs and experienced researchers;
  • Support for the preparation of applications;
  • Project administration and financial management;
  • Technology transfer activities.

This information and support is provided by the Research and Transfer Service of USI (Università della Svizzera italiana) and SUPSI (University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland), whose mission is to support researchers of both institutions in their scientific activities.
