Information on our funding instruments

Innovation projects

  • The funding for innovation projects is currently ensured. The dates for the evaluation meetings are valid. All further information can be found here.

Thematic specialist events

At this point in time, it is not possible to make reliable predictions about future developments. We therefore ask you to get in touch with your contact person at Innosuisse before you submit an application for funding for a thematic specialist event.
