Promotion of Research
In 2019, the employees of the University of Bern generated around CHF 351 million in external funding for research.
In the same year this amounted – with considerable fluctuations between disciplines and researchers – to around CHF 358,718 on average (over three years 2016-2018) per professorship (national average CHF 353,579). It is a primary objective of the Executive Board of the University of Bern to further increase this amount. All researchers are therefore encouraged to solicit external funding.
