Important Information regarding Switzerland’s association to Horizon Europe
On 26 May 2021, the Federal Council decided not to sign the Institutional Agreement with the European Union. The European Commission informed the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation SERI on 12 July that Switzerland will be treated as a non-associated third country in the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, Horizon Europe, until further notice.
Researchers in Switzerland can still participate in calls for proposals under the status, albeit to a limited extent, and receive funding directly from the Confederation. However, participation in individual projects, in particular in future calls for proposals from the European Research Council, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions and the European Innovation Council, is no longer possible. The Federal Council’s stated aim remains Switzerland’s full association to Horizon Europe.
You can find the most recent information on the current status of Switzerland within Horizon Europe and relevant materials for researchers on the SERI website - this website is constantly updated.
