Can organizations in Switzerland participate in Horizon 2020?

Yes, Swiss organizations can participate, as can organizations from any other country. However, they are not eligible for automatic funding for the whole programme. As of 15 September 2014, Switzerland is a partly Associated Country (AC) to Horizon 2020 and can only receive funding for certain areas in the programme. These areas are:

  • the "Excellent Science" pillar (the 1st pillar), containing the European Research Council, Future and Emerging Technologies, Research Infrastructures and the Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions;

  • actions under the specific objective “Spreading excellence and widening participation”;

  • the Euratom Programme; and

  • the activities carried out by the European Joint Undertaking for ITER and the Development of Fusion for Energy for 2014-2020.
