- scientific projets including salaries for post-docs, Ph.D. students or technicians.
- field trip or scientific expeditions
We aim to help advanced researchers of the UNIL to select the most appropriate funding source and support them in the elaboration and submission of their projects. We just remind researchers that negotiation and signature of contracts are supervised by the PACTT.
Junior researchers looking for individual grants should check the list of grant registers available here below. We do also provide researchers a personalised list of targeted financing source.
