Update: National Funding for Swiss Participants in Horizon 2020
The Swiss Federal Council has recently released information about funding provided by the Swiss Government to fund participation of Swiss organisations in Horizon 2020.
The Swiss Federal Government has just announced its provision of national funding for Swiss legal entities participating in successful bids under the 2014 calls of Horizon 2020. The Swiss government wants to ensure that the participation of Switzerland in the Horizon 2020 programme remains strong after the European Commission assigned it a developed third-country status, ineligible for EU funding after popular referendum in February 2014, which effectively limited the immigration of Croatian nationals to Switzerland. This initiative, however, remains an interim measure as details of national funding for Swiss legal entities after the 2014 call of Horizon 2020 remain unknown.
