Research across disciplinary boundaries: Interdisciplinary project funding is aimed at experienced researchers working in Switzerland who wish to obtain funding for a project of their own. They need to be in a position to run their project independently. The research topic can be chosen freely. The grants cover direct costs such as salaries of collaborators, materials, travel as well as other expenses. The costs of publication in a purely Open Access journal as well as the production costs of scientific book publications that are digital and Open Access are also covered by the grant and must be requested when the project proposal is submitted.
From 2016, as part of the innovations in SNSF research funding, interdisciplinary projects may be submitted through the instrument Sinergia.
