The participating institutions choose a fixed grant (CHF 15,000 / CHF 30,000 / CHF 60,000 / CHF 100,000 / CHF 150,000) depending on the project budget and the contributions they can provide. The selected Movetia grant covers a maximum of 60% of the total costs.

The Movetia grant can finance the following costs:

  • Staff costs
  • Travel costs
  • Material costs
