SNSF: National Research Programmes (NRPs)

NRPs are aimed at researchers in Switzerland who want to study topics of national significance. The research topics of the individual programmes are specified by the Federal Council. NRPs are distinguished by the following characteristics: they are solution-oriented and close to the practical realm; they are interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary; the research projects of an NRP jointly pursue an overall goal; knowledge transfer and the communication of results are valued highly.
