    Swiss Participation in Horizon 2020

    Switzerland has ratified the protocol that extends the Agreement on the Free Movement of Persons to Croatia. As a consequence the status of Switzerland for the EU Framework Programme "Horizon 2020" (2014-2020) will change from partial to full association.

    Switzerland being again an Associated Country from 1.1.2017 onwards means that researchers and host institutions based in Switzerland will have the same rights in "Horizon 2020" as is the case for EU Member States. See Swiss Participation in Horizon 2020 for more information.
