Ten projects approved by the SNSF in 2017
Projects involving 11 researchers from the Faculty of Business and Economics at UNIL were selected for grant funding by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) in 2017. In total, the SNSF will provide over CHF 1.7 million in funding for the new projects, spread over several months or years, enabling the researchers to create a team and launch their project.
The Faculty of Business and Economics is proud to count researchers who have obtained an SNSF grant among its teaching staff. Indeed, the SNSF bases its funding decisions for scientific research on quality criteria. As well as providing a valuable funding source, which will allow the researchers concerned to create their teams and complete their projects, the SNSF’s selection process, which takes place every year, recognises the excellence of the research carried out by members of the faculty.

Olivier Cadot, Vice-Dean for research, comments: “The Dean’s Office would like to express the faculty’s gratitude to our colleagues for all the energy they invest in their research. This has allowed them to secure external funding, which benefits the faculty in terms of both resources and reputation. We wish them every success in their academic projects, whose influence already extends well beyond our boundaries and are recognized accordingly by the SNSF.”
