What we offer
Since its creation more than 65 years ago, ESM has fostered industrial materials research related to critical elements. Over 2 Mio CHF have been granted to projects in fields where less common elements play a crucial role (physics, materials science, engineering, etc). Typically, the funding covers:
- knowledge creation: PhD Theses and Research Support,
- knowledge carriers: ESM Fellowships,
- knowledge cooperation: European and international PPP projects, and
- knowledge dissemination: Studies & Reports, Seminars and Conferences

Most of these funds were given to beneficiaries within the ETH Domain. Additional funding was provided to recipients of other Swiss universities and to young scientists supporting their work experience in other laboratories in Europe, Asia or USA.
