Swiss Parks Research

Due to their special status, Swiss Parks are becoming increasingly important as reference and preference areas for comparative research. In addition to supporting and coordinating research, we also promote national and international collaboration and knowledge transfer between the parks, among other things by means of conferences and publications and the research project database.

These tasks are strategically accompanied by the scientific monitoring group.

Seed Money / Support of projects
Until 2019, 4x CHF 5000 seed money per year was granted for promising park research projects (see list). Since the integration into FoLAP, the calls for co-funding run topic-specifically over the entire FoLAP. Projects from park research are also welcome here! Current opportunities are published here.

The Swiss National Park Research Committee (FOK-SNP) has promoted and managed research in the Swiss National Park on behalf of the Swiss Academy of Sciences since 1916. In 2008, this area was extended to include the regional biosphere reserve Val Müstair and the UNESCO biosphere reserve Engiadina Val Müstair.
