Switzerland fully associate to Horizon 2020


On 16 December 2016, Switzerland has ratified the protocol extending the free movement of persons to Croatia. As a consequence, the precondition for Switzerland to fully participate in the Horizon 2020 research programme has been met. The status of Switzerland for the EU Framework Programme “Horizon 2020” (2014-2020) is changed from partial to full association.


From 1.1.2017 onwards researchers, host institutions and SMEs based in Switzerland will have the same rights in “Horizon 2020” as is the case for EU Member States.


For further information, do not hesitate to contact us.
