Mandated by the federal government, SNSF supports basic science in all academic disciplines, from history to medicine and the engineering sciences. The SNSF is Switzerland’s foremost research funding organisation and finances over 3,400 projects involving 14,000 researchers each year.
The Swiss Confederation has mandated the SNSF to fund basic research and promote young scientists in Switzerland. The SNSF’s strategy and objectives are geared to fulfilling this task and strengthening Swiss research as a whole.
