27.06.2022 - In 2021, the Confederation spent CHF 2.2 billion undertaking or in support of research and development activities. Compared with 2019, the last year observed, this represents a decrease of CHF 413 million (-16%). Non-adhesion to the "Horizon Europe" EU research and innovation framework programme is the main reason for this.
