Europe / Euresearch

The EU's 9th Research Framework Programme Horizon Europe (2021-2027) also offers a variety of options for the social sciences and humanities, both in terms of project funding and career funding. Please see Horizon Europe 2021-2027.

Of particular interest are the funding of individual projects in the field of basic research (bottom-up) by the European Research Council (ERC) and the mobility funding of individual researchers through Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.

On behalf of the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI), Euresearch promotes Swiss participation inHorizon Europe. It is an information and advisory centre for researchers. Euresearch has been in existence since 2001 and its head office is in Bern. Since April 2006 there is a Regional Office in Lucerne.

Please contact the two offices directly for information and advice (enquiries and applications should be coordinated with the Research Promotion Unit):
