Are you willing to conduct a research project in collaboration with your national or international partners? Then consider submitting an SNSF Sinergia or an ERC Sinergy project, or proposing a new COST Action, some of the many funding opportunities for collaborative projects / research collaborations.


SNSF Sinergia

Sinergia promotes interdisciplinary collaboration between two to four applicants whose project involves breakthrough research.

Funding is granted for one to four years with a budget between CHF 50’000 and CHF 3.2 million. A Sinergia consortium is formed of at least 2 to a maximum of 4 research groups.


ERC Synergy Grant

ERC Synergy Grants enable teams of two to four Principal Investigators (PIs) to pool complementary skills, knowledge, and resources in unprecedented ways in order to jointly address ambitious research problems.

Up to 10 million EUR are available for projects of up to 6 years duration.


COST Action

COST Actions are flexible, fast, effective and efficient networking instrument for researchers, engineers and scholars to cooperate and coordinate nationally funded research activities. COST does not fund research itself; in Switzerland research projects proposed by researchers participating in a COST Action are funded by the SNSF.
