Istituto Svizzero di Roma
DeadlineAll year round
The Istituto Svizzero di Roma, which is also represented in Milan, has been supporting scientific and cultural exchanges in Italy since its reopening in 2005. The Institute organises numerous events and also offers residencies to Swiss researchers and artists. It is financed by SERI and Pro Helvetia, with the support of the Federal Office for Buildings and Logistics.
The Istituto Svizzero issues new calls every year for its residency programmes and hosts 12 young Swiss residents each year, comprising six researchers and six artists. The residents of the Roma Calling programme are provided with rooms and places to work. The aim of the programme is to provide young scientists and artists the opportunity to further their careers in Italy, to create and develop networks and collaborations between the academic and artistic scenes of Switzerland and Italy, and to promote Swiss education, research, innovation and artistic creation in Italy.
