Swiss science foundation rearranges funding schemes

The Swiss National Science Foundation has changed its research funding schemes’ classification.

Schemes now fall into five families: projects (for basic research), careers (including fellowships and SNSF professorships); programmes (for research into pre-determined topics); infrastructure; and science communication.

Also, the foundation has renamed some of its administrative services. In particular, the targeted research division becomes the programmes division and the individual funding division is now the careers division.
