Sinergia is a funding instrument of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) that focuses on cultivating collaborative projects consisting of three to four research teams.
The program is geared towards established researchers and research teams working within one discipline as well as for interdisciplinary projects.
Research groups may be based at various universities or research centres in Switzerland. One of the research groups may be outside Switzerland if the expertise is required and no other group in the country can supply this at a sufficiently high level.
