Overview of Projects (2000-2016)

At the SAUTE AGM 2014 it was decided that SAUTE ought to make the research activities of its members more visible. The Research Archive section is a list of SNF projects and advanced scholarships (only Ambizione/Marie Heim-Voegtlin/SNF professors) from 2000 to 2016.

A complete archive and up-to-date overview of funding can be found in the SNF project database (filters can be set to our discipline and departments).

Please contact the SAUTE webmasters if you feel that important information is missing.
