The University of Bern has a subscription to Research Professional, a database of research funding opportunities covering all scholarly disciplines, that can be used free of charge by all researchers at the University of Bern and the Inselspital. Research Professional features search and customisation tools to help you find appropriate funding for your research.

The database includes a comprehensive list of national, European, and international funding opportunities from a variety of funders, e.g. funding agencies, universities, companies, foundations, etc. The open calls of the EU Framework Programs as well as from the Swiss National Science Foundation are included.

Further advantages of a personal account: You can log in from anywhere, also outside the university network.
