The IMI Research Grant is designed to support media-related research and innovation projects, either through periodic thematic calls or through the open submission of proposals on priority topics.
In general, grant applications are primarily open to academic institutions and media organizations affiliated with IMI or to third parties collaborating with IMI members. Projects can last from a few months to up to 24 months, and grants are generally limited to CHF 120,000 per year (excluding overhead costs). Finally, a media organization must be involved in each project, either by contributing or at least by endorsing it.
To learn more about the criteria, requirements, submission guidelines and evaluation process for such projects, please read the Funding Request document.
