Promotion of Research

In 2017, the employees of the University of Bern generated around CHF 327 million in external funding for research. In the same year this amounted – with considerable fluctuations between disciplines and researchers – to around CHF 397,450 on average per professorship (national average CHF 382,906). 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.
