Promotion of Research

In 2020, the employees of the University of Bern generated around CHF 359 million in external funding for research.

This amounted – with considerable fluctuations between disciplines and researchers – to around CHF 566,133 on average (over three years 2018-2020) per professorship (national average CHF 519,947). 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.
