In its press release of 21 December 2020, the Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research (EAER) announced the government’s funding contributions to research institutions of national importance for the years 2021–2024.
The government’s funding includes contributions to the SCTO’s projects, including the Clinical Trial Unit (CTU) Network and the Swiss Research Network of Clinical Pediatric Hubs (SwissPedNet). In 2007, the CTUs of the university hospitals of Basel, Bellinzona, Bern, Geneva, Lausanne, and Zurich and the cantonal hospital of St. Gallen formed a network, which has become a well-established and nationally coordinated clinical research infrastructure.
In the period of 2021–2024, the government will support 31 research institutions with a total of approximately CHF 460 million. The funded institutions span a range of disciplines and complement the research activities at the universities and in the ETH Domain.
