1 || Korean-Swiss Science and Technology Programme Overview Dr. Rahel Byland, Programme Manager ETH Zurich 1March 2014Dr. Rahel Byland, ETH Global

2 || 2 ETH Zurich in the Context of Switzerland’s S&T Landscape National network of technical universities and research institutions Joint strategic management and supervisory body: ETH Board Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research (EAER) ETH Domain Sister institution EPF Lausanne ETH Zurich Research Institutions March 2014Dr. Rahel Byland, ETH Global2

3 || Coordination of the Programme in Switzerland 3 The Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich), in a mandate from SERI, is representing all Swiss universities, research institutes, and universities of applied sciences. In its role as Leading House it coordinates the programme and ensures its availability to researchers from all those Swiss institutions. March 2014Dr. Rahel Byland, ETH Global

4 || Joint Calls Seed Funding 2009 and 2010  7 broad scientific areas (environment, material sciences, energy, life sciences, IT, applied physics and design sciences)  2 calls with 28 and 31 applications respectively  Support of 12 (2009) and 13 (2010) projects with 20’000 CHF for 1 year Joint Research Projects 2011 and 2012  5 broad scientific areas (environment, material sciences, energy, life sciences, IT)  2 calls with 42 and 43 applications respectively  Support of 6 projects from each call March 20144Dr. Rahel Byland, ETH Global

5 || Korean-Swiss Science Days  2010: 9/10 September in Seoul “Cleantech for Green Growth”. With Swiss Embassy and NRF, Korean and Swiss Universities and small companies.  2011: 9/10 November in Zurich at ETH “Water for the Future” with EAWAG, Swiss and Korean universities.  2012: 17/18 April at SNU, SNU-KAIST-ETHZ -EPFL Joint Symposium on Biomedical Engineering  2013: 7/8 May 2013 in Lausanne at EPFL “Novel trends at the frontier of computing and electronics”. With Nanotera.ch, several Swiss institutions KAIST, SNU and Samsung and LG March 20145Dr. Rahel Byland, ETH Global

6 || 6 Learnings from the Programme 6March 2014Dr. Rahel Byland, ETH Global  Even application numbers for different topics, applications from many different institutions in both countries  Cooperation is wide spread over scientific fields and institutions  Only 37 small projects out of 144 applications could be supported  The available funding of the programme did not match the great interest in cooperation between Switzerland and Korea  Despite the low success rate application numbers have steadily grown  Cooperation between the two countries and interest in funding has increased  Applicants have applied for several consecutive years  Cooperation is sustainable and funding for longer-term projects needed

7 || 7 Future of the Programme in Switzerland 7March 2014Dr. Rahel Byland, ETH Global The responsibility for the programme will be split between the SNSF (research funding instruments in cooperation with NRF) and ETH Zurich (strategy and symposia) Korean-Swiss Science Days ETH Zurich will continue to organize and fund the Korean-Swiss Science Days with Korean partners. Both bottom-up initiatives as well as strategic topics should be considered. Strategy ETH Zurich together with the Swiss Embassy in Seoul is mapping the ongoing research cooperation between Korea and Switzerland to identify topics of mututal interest and suggest new funding instruments for the future.
