General information and objectives

The SCCERs are looking for solutions to the technical, social and political challenges arising as a result of the energy revolution. Eight SCCERs were created in seven action areas. They offer you as a researcher at a Swiss research institution, or as a Swiss entrepreneur, the full spectrum of the current energy innovation chain, taking account of developments in all areas, from basic research through applied R&D to legal, regulatory and behavioural aspects. The SCCERs also provide research infrastructure and many networking opportunities with key experts and young researchers from the fields concerned.

The objectives of an SCCER is:

  • to encourage and/or expand basic research in those areas in which higher education institutions need to make greater efforts to implement the Energy Strategy 2050 long-term;

  • to promote the potentially most effective ideas and approaches, in particular in applied research and development;

  • to ensure that research results are transferred to the market.
