SPHN funding to support the roll-out of nationwide infrastructures 2017–2020
The SPHN initiative supports the development and implementation of coordinated infrastructures based on a 3-pillar funding strategy:
1. Top-down funding
2. Bottom-up funding
Selection of projects through competitive Calls for Proposals to lead the development of infrastructures and test it with concrete research projects.
In 2017 and 2018, two SPHN Calls for Proposals were organized in close coordination with the Strategic Focus Area 'Personalized Health and Related Technologies' (PHRT) of the ETH Domain. Selected from a total of 76 proposals requesting CHF 90.4 million, SPHN funded 24 projects (incl. 6 co-funded by PHRT) for a total amount of CHF 25.3 million.
