Female professors continue to be underrepresented at Swiss higher education institutions. By introducing PRIMA (Promoting Women in Academia), the SNSF intends to contribute to the appointment of female professors in Switzerland. PRIMA grants are aimed at excellent women researchers from Switzerland and abroad who aspire to a professorship in Switzerland. PRIMA grantees lead their own research project at a Swiss higher education institution. They work independently and have a team of their own.
