Financial Support

The Swiss Committee for Space Research can provide some (small) funding for activities directly related to space research such as:

  • The representation of Swiss Space Research interests at meetings, in various committees, and/or consortia related to instrument building or mission planing
  • To support travel expenses of junior scientists for attending international meetings related to space sciences
  • To attend schools directly related to space sciences (such as the Alpbach summer school for example).

To apply, please send a written application to the President outlining the purpose of the support and a short budget. The Committee will review the applications about twice a year (spring and fall).
