Third-Party Funded Projects

Indicator for Academic Excellence

Third-party funds refer to grants for research and teaching. They are an important addition to the basic funding provided by the Canton of Zurich and the public sector. UZH has to acquire these funds by competing with other higher education and research institutions, which means that they are also an important indicator of the success of UZH researchers.

Disclosing the Sources of Third-Party Funds

UZH discloses the sources of its third-party funds in a transparency list, which is updated on a yearly basis. The list includes agreements with a value of over 100,000 Swiss francs.  

The following are not included on the list:

  • Funding for individuals and projects provided by the European Union (EU) EU
  • Funding for individuals and projects provided by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) SNF
  • Services
  • Third-party fund transactions that are subject to confidentiality on the basis of overriding legal provisions.
