Swiss research institutes and businesses given access to the ECSEL Joint Undertaking


On 9 March 2018 the Federal Council approved the agreement on Switzerland’s participation in the ECSEL JU.

In signing the agreement, Switzerland commits to contribute project funding according to the ECSEL JU programme statutes drawn up jointly with the other participating states. To this end it must provide a funding budget for the Swiss project partners. The 2018 ECSEL JU call for projects is open to Swiss applicants. Details of the conditions for participation can be found here and on the ECSEL JU website.

The ECSEL JU Work Plan will be updated accordingly (e.g. eligibility criteria for Swiss participants, budget, etc) and will be soon available on ECSEL JU Calls 2018.
