The first day of the event will focus on the novelties of the new EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, „Horizon Europe“, and Swiss participation in it. High-level speakers from the European Commission and the State Secretariat for Research and Innovation will provide information on the latest developments. The past experience of Swiss researchers will be illustrated in two testimonials, one from the academic and one from the private sector.
The three parts (the so-called Pillars) of Horizon Europe will be more comprehensively introduced on the second day. The morning is rounded off by inspiring success stories from previous Swiss participants in the EU Framework Programmes.
Day 2 finishes with virtual 1:1 meetings with the Swiss National Contact Points (NCPs) and advisors from the regional offices of Euresearch and the Swiss Enterprise Europe Network. Be sure to book a meeting if you would like a chance to talk to our experts.
The event will be held in English and it is aimed at researchers based in or coming to Switzerland. Unfortunately, we cannot consider the participation of people with no connection to research in Switzerland.

Horizon Europe is the biggest research and innovation funding programme of the European Union yet proposed.
It aims at strenghthening the EU’s science and technology sectors and competitiveness while tackling major global challenges in vital areas such as climate change, building resilience, and achieving sustainable development. Horizon Europe provides the means for the European Union to secure its position as a world leader in research and innovation. Building on the experience and on the achievements of Horizon 2020, Horizon Europe offers a broad range of opportunities not only for Switzerland’s public and private R&I players, but also for its citizens.
