Euresearch St.Gallen On behalf of the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SBFI), we advise researchers from universities, universities of applied sciences, other research bodies and private enterprises. Euresearch St.Gallen is part of the Swiss Information Network on European Research and Innovation. We advise all researchers who are located in eastern Switzerland (AI, AR, GR, SG and TG cantons). Following the adoption of the Swiss popular vote on the limitation of mass immigration on 9 February 2014, an agreement was found with the European Commission (EC) for a so-called partial association of Switzerland to Horizon 2020: ERC-Grants Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Research Infrastrures „Spreading Excellence and Widening Participation“ (as "third country", but with direct financing by the EU) Fot other instruments, Switzerland must be considered an industrialised third country in Horizon 2020: swiss project partners can take part in an international consortium without requesting an EU grant. The Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) will finance the swiss participants. Switzerland is not eligible for the SME instrument. Euresearch services (video) are free of charge.
