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