Swiss Participation in Horizon 2020

On December 16th, 2016  the Federal Council of Switzerland ratified the protocol on the extension of the free movement of persons to Croatia.  This means that as of 1 January 2017 until 31 December 2020 Switzerland is fully associated to Horizon 2020 and research institutions, organisations and SMEs based in Switzerland are able to submit proposals to all Horizon 2020 calls. Successful proposals will then be directly financed by the EU.

Please note that the decision of the Federal Council does not have any consequences for running Horizon 2020 projects.

If you as a Swiss partner, intend to enter an already running Horizon 2020 project or if you would like to transfer your Horizon 2020 project to an institution outside Switzerland, we would kindly ask you to contact us.
