Funding in Switzerland
Swiss partners are not entitled to funding through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). However, in the framework of the New Regional Policy (NRP), Switzerland has foreseen a national budget for its partners which is managed by the Federal Office for Spatial Development (ARE) under some conditions. The Swiss project participants are asked to address early the Alpine Space contact point in order to discuss the procedure and funding. Swiss partners have to fill in a form during the second step of the application process where they give information on their activities and a detailed budget. The contribution is then discussed on this basis. The cofinancing rate is flexible and is decided on a case-by-case basis. Other public authorities on federal, regional and local levels, other bodies governed by public law and private partners may also provide a contribution to a project, under the condition that all sources of funding are communicated to the ARE.
