Welcome to the Hasler Foundation

The purpose of the Hasler Foundation is to promote information and communications technology (ICT) for the well-being and benefit of Switzerland as an intellectual and industrial centre. The Foundation aims to play an active role in ensuring that Switzerland continues to take a leading position in science and technology in the future.

The Foundation provides its support by financing or co-financing selected educational, research and innovation projects and undertakings in the field of ICT.

The Foundation is politically and religiously neutral and free of any commercial interests. Although it is a non-profit-making organisation, it is not a charity, in that its support is always results-based, in keeping with the purpose of the Foundation.

On our website, you can find out what and whom the Hasler Foundation supports, and how to make an application.

There is also a brief introduction to the foundation itself.

Standard Projects
Even though the scientific committee of the Hasler Foundation has cancelled the standard projects per October 2016, in exceptional cases it will remain possible to submit proposals for projects exceeding the sum of CHF 50’000.00.
Please contact our office prior to submitting your application.
We expect a project abstract, an estimate of the total funds required and any further documents you deem essential to be sent to contact (at) haslerstiftung.ch.
