The Swiss Federal Office of Energy, together with other national and European funding agencies and the EU Commission, promotes international cooperation between innovative universities, companies and organisations, end users and civil society to solve the challenges in the energy sector.
With their participation, qualified Swiss universities and companies can help to shape international solutions and standards and link up with driving forces in these thematic areas. Innovative Swiss organisations thus benefit from integration in consortia that implement European solutions, as well as from the planned investments.
To this end, the funding agencies team up and jointly launch calls for transnational projects. The funded projects receive the funds directly from the participating organisations in their country.
