Swiss Finance Institute supports and promotes promising reseach projects in selected areas through funding received from the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation.
The research funds are awarded on a strictly competitive basis to researchers based in Switzerland under the supervision of the SFI Project Evaluation Committee. This has led to funding 21 projects across eight Swiss universities (EPFL, ETHZ, UNIBE, UNIGE, UNIL, UNISG, USI, and UZH). Currently, 19 projects continue to be funded. SFI has also funded three research projects directly.
