As Switzerland is only a non-associated third country in the Horizon Europe research programme of the European Research Council (ERC), the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) launched the SNSF Consolidator Grants 2022 as a transitional measure on behalf of the Swiss Confederation. 182 applications were submitted for an SNSF Consolidator Grant 2022. After a two-stage evaluation, the SNSF decided to fund 30 applications.
