Research USI in facts and figures


Focus of the week:

Horizon Europe

Horizon Europe is the new European framework program for research and innovation, which will run from January 2021 until 2027. It will tackle major global challenges such as climate change, building resilience, and achieving sustainable development goals through competitive calls for proposals.


USI Mobility Grants

Submission deadline: 1 March 2021

USI provides support to doctoral students matriculated at the Università della Svizzera italiana who wish to improve their scientific profile by going abroad for a stay of 6-12 months during the PhD.

This new opportunity replaces the SNSF Doc.Mobility scheme that was recently closed by the SNSF.


SNSF - SPIRIT: Simplified selection process

From 1 February 2021, the SPIRIT programme no longer requires a pre-proposal. Researchers can submit their project proposals directly. The deadline is 2 November every year.
