3 January 2017 - Since the beginning of this year, Switzerland has been fully associated with the European Framework Program Horizon 2020. Even if the country is not an EU member, it is therefore possible to cooperate more effectively with research and innovation in the heart of Europe.
Switzerland's full association with Horizon 2020 applies to all Grant Agreements (GAs), which will be concluded as of 1 January 2017. Previously signed Grant Agreements remain unaffected. From a practical point of view, this means that Swiss organizations are now automatically eligible for funding in all areas of Horizon 2020 and can apply for EU funding.
