Research financing

With a view to developing a knowledge-based society, scientific research plays a central role; governments devote significant funds to it that are awarded on a competitive basis.

At Swiss level, HES⁠-⁠SO researchers tend to approach the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) and the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI). At European level, funds are obtained through the European Union’s Framework Programmes that Switzerland is part of. These projects enable the integration into consortia of partners from many different countries.

Given its closeness to the world of professional practice, the HES⁠-⁠SO also benefits from research assignment contracts with companies, institutions, or administrations. A number of foundations also encourage research in specific areas.

Certain funds that are internal to the HES⁠-⁠SO and devoted to Ra& D also enable the development of new areas of expertise and support searches for financing.
