News on SNF research funding

At the AGM 2014 we decided to make our research activities more visible by listing recently acquired SNF projects and advanced scholarships (only Ambizione/Marie Heim-Voegtlin/SNF professors).  We used the year 2000 as our starting point. However, a complete archive and up-to-date overview of funding can be found in the SNF project database (filters can be set to our discipline and departments).
