Falling Swiss participation documented

Switzerland’s involvement in the EU’s Framework programme has fallen significantly following its downgrade to a partial association agreement.

Researchers based in Switzerland have accounted for only 1.8 per cent of the participations in Horizon 2020 so far, down from 3.2 per cent in Framework 7, according to a report published by the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation on 21 January. 

Switzerland has been awarded the coordination of just 0.3 per cent of Horizon 2020 projects, down from 3.9 per cent in Framework 7. Meanwhile, its funding has dropped to 2.2 per cent of Horizon 2020 allocations, from 4.2 per cent of the Framework 7 total.
