Euresearch is a Swiss non-profit organisation with a single mission: to help Swiss clients from academia and the private sector find international funding and opportunities for cooperation. Since the start of the european union's 7th Framework programme (Fp7) in 2007 Swiss participants have demonstrated an ability to compete successfully at the global level. in this context, euresearch provides a wide range of services to Swiss clients covering basic research, innovation and support for SMe. through its professional staff and strong networks, euresearch supplies prompt, targeted information

and tailored expert knowledge. it also conducts highly effective searches for transnational technology partners using the enterprise europe network. horizon 2020, the new eu Framework programme will run from 2014. in addition to the previous focus on research, it will foster innovation and give greater emphasis to marketrelated aspects. horizon 2020 will act as a gateway for Switzerland allowing it to consolidate its expertise, continue the process of adapting to a changing international environment and maintain its leading position in research.

euresearch strives at all times to improve its services so that it can facilitate and promote opportunities for Swiss participation and cooperation in european research & innovation programmes. as with Fp7, euresearch will continue to be a reliable and competent partner for horizon 2020. it will provide the support you need on your journey towards new horizons.

Euresearch – Swiss Guide to European Research and Innovation Euresearch is mandated by the Switzerland’s State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation and supports the Swiss community in its efforts to participate in pan-European research and innovation programmes. Did you know that funding might be available from the European Commission for your project  ? The European Commission provides a range of opportunities for academia and the private sector to engage in research and innovation. If you would like to know more, why not attend one of our events for Small and Mediumsized Enterprises ( SME ) or academic institutions ? These events provide an overview of the various opportunities. Similarly, if you have a burning question about how to complete your project proposal or if you are looking for international partnerships in order to access new markets, Euresearch is here to support you  !

Euresearch has national coverage through its 10 Regional Offices and also has a team of experts in specific fields based at its offices in Bern. The Euresearch network can support you from project inception through to the final report to the European Commission. You can also participate in a range of events, workshops and trainings on how to prepare your proposal or manage your project. There are also opportunities to take advantage of tailored support from one of our staff. As the Swiss contact point for Enterprise Europe Network ( EEN ), Euresearch can provide specialist support to SME on facilitating transnational technology transfer and accessing new markets. Similarly, if you are looking for the right partner for your project, EEN can help. The Framework Programme may be changing from FP7 to Horizon 2020 ( see page 15 ) but Euresearch will still be here to help you further your objectives.
