Sciex - Scientific Exchange Programme NMS.CH

The Scientific Exchange Programme (Sciex-NMSch) was part of the Swiss Contribution to the New Member States (NMS) of the European Union and aimed at contributing to the reduction of economic and social disparities in the enlarged European Union through fostering the scientific capacities of Researchers in the NMS and promoting sustainable research partnerships between the ten NMS and Switzerland.

The Programme  started in 2009 and terminated in April 2016. No further applications are possible.

The New Member States (NMS) of the European Union involved in the Programme were: Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia.

The main goal of the Programme was to establish scientific partnerships, which:
1) Develop individual Researchers’ capacities (human capital);
2) Foster scientific progress and innovation (scientific prospects); and
3) Establish or enhance networks between Researchers (networking).

The Scientific Exchange Programme (Sciex-NMSch) provided:
1) Research Fellowships for Junior Researchers from the ten NMS to pursue their research in cooperation with Swiss Researchers in Swiss research institutions and
2) Short-term visits for Senior Researchers of granted Fellowships.

Altogether, 10 calls have been organized over the whole duration of the Programme and more than 500 young researchers from the EU-10 countries were given the opportunity to complete a research residency of between 6 and 24 months in Switzerland. Ideal working and framework conditions support the success of their research. The evaluation procedure was exclusively based on the scientific quality of the fellowship proposal and guaranteed the excellence principles of the Programme (see Details on the evaluation procedure). The Programme was open to all scientific fields.

The total budget of the Programme amounted to 46 million Swiss Francs.

The Programme was coordinated by the Rectors’ Conference of Swiss Higher Education Institutions (swissuniversities) on a mandate of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
