Second Call for Proposals
In the first call 2019, only two technology transfer centers were selected to receive ETH Board funds as well as federal funding under Art. 15 RIPA (Federal Act on the Promotion of Research and Innovation). The successful launch and good progress of these two centers has driven the AM-TTC Alliance and their funding partners, the SERI and the ETH Board, to issue a second call for proposals in 2021. The aim of the second call is to select and establish two or three additional AM-TTC in Switzerland that help to transfer further advanced manufacturing technologies from academia into industrial applications.
Therefore, partners from academia and industry are invited to jointly discuss the need for additional facilities to transfer advanced manufacturing technologies into industrial applications and to prepare a plan how to set up and operate such facilities for the benefit of the Swiss industry.
The application process and the deadlines follow the necessity to submit the proposals and the funding requests of the centers as well as the funding recommendations of the AM-TTC Alliance and the Swiss Science Council (SSC) to the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) in the first half of 2022 to enable the selected centers to start their activities in the second half of 2022.
