For the funding of scientific equipment, the Vice President Research and Corporate Relations and the Vice President Human Resources and Infrastructure have ETH internal financial resources at their disposal. This program is to be used for the acquisition of scientific equipment or ICT (Information & Communication Technology) items that exceed the budget of the research units only. The allocation of these funds is based on a competitive proposal submission and is subject to evaluation.
Proposals for scientific equipment may be submitted by:
The principal applicant must be an ETH employee. If equipment is granted, it has to be inventoried at ETH Zurich.
Detailed information on requirements for scientific equipment requests is given in the detailed submission instructions. Applications not complying with the guidelines will be rejected on formal grounds.
(reachable only from the ethz.ch domain)
Requests for scientific equipment must be submitted electronically by means of the online form. Note: We no longer accept proposals submitted using the .exe file available previously.
Submission deadlines for requests exceeding CHF 50’000 are January 15, May 1, and September 1. Requests amounting to less than CHF 50’000 are not subject to deadlines.
Notifications of decisions will generally be sent to the principal applicant within 2 to 4 months following the submission deadline. Exceptions are made for requests exceeding CHF 500’000; these requests need to be discussed with the ETH Zurich Executive Board.
