Activities funded under the MdP Call 2014 with involved entities

For the third time, the SERI/SSO issued a Call for proposals “To foster and promote Swiss scientific and technological competences related to space activities”. At the deadline for proposals submission, on April 18th, 2014, no less than 30 new activities were received, originating from all over Switzerland.


After the review process, 10 activities were selected for funding. They started officially on November 1st 2014 and will be concluded on January 31st 2016. The list of on-going projects with the partners involved (industrial and academic) can be found here below.


The projects are completed. Follow this link for more info on results achieved.
