SNSF projects extensions

Servizio ricerca e trasferimento del sapere

29 Marzo 2019

Do you need more time to complete your SNSF project? You have the opportunity to ask for an extension for up to 12 months. Extensions can be either cost-neutral (in cases of underspending) or requiring additional funding, generally to support the salary of the Phd student(s) employed on the project.

The requirements for such a request are:

  • Scientific motivation of the request, showing that the reasons leading to the delay were unforeseeable; the purposes for which the extension is to be used and why it is necessary for the successful completion of the project;
  • The financial situation, including a forecast of the final balance and a tentative budget of the extension period. This will be done by Servizio Ricerca.

Please contact Milan Savic ( around 6 months prior to your project’s ending date to set up the request and to verify the project’s budget.
