Industrial Project Program

IPP calls and explanations

Most of MUST research concerns fundamental research questions and is distant from industrial interests. However, at the forefront of research new equipment and methods are being developed that are of interest to the photonic instrumentation industry, pharmaceutical companies, and for environmental monitoring and detection.

The NCCR MUST Management selects and funds with true seed money so called “industrial projects”. Such a project can be submitted by an NCCR MUST PI or junior PI together with a project leader/CTO of a company (small or large). The “industrial project” allows the PI to carry out the work necessary to be able to submit a CTI project proposal at a later stage.

The industrial project is limited to a maximum of 24 months, and a sum of up to 100’000 CHF, as described in the submission guidelines (NCCR MUST IPP Submission Guidelines-2015 ). The three calls during Phase I resulted in five IPPS, the first call of Phase II resulted in one IPP, and we have now opened a new call with deadline December 15, 2015 (NCCR MUST IPP Submission Form-2015 ).
