National Centres of Competence
in Research (NCCRs)
Goals and Implementation
In the year 2001 the Swiss National Science
Foundation launched the National Centres of
Competence in Research (NCCR). The main
goal of the NCCRs is the promotion of scientific excellence in areas of major strategic
importance for the future of Swiss research,
economy and society. NCCRs are located at
universities or other distinguished research
institutions (home institutions). In addition
to the research teams at the home institution,
an NCCR sets up a network of other research
teams across Switzerland. The maximum duration of an NCCR is 12 years. The three underlying principles of NCCRs are:
• Research: NCCRs carry out research of excellent quality, spanning basic research to
applications. There is a number of individual
projects doing the actual research work in
each NCCR. The NCCR director ensures the
coherence and integration of the individual
projects.
• Knowledge and technology transfer: NCCRs
develop links with the potential users of their
results, and involve them in project planning
from the outset.
• Training and promotion of women: NCCRs
create the necessary structures and implement measures required to train young scientists (doctoral and postdoctoral students).
Particular attention is paid to equal opportunities.
From a research policy point of view, NCCRs
contribute to a better structuring of the Swiss
research environment, and to optimised task
assignment between research institutions.
NCCRs are funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF), participating institutions – in particular the home institutions –
and third parties.
Since 1999 four NCCR calls have been published (see table on next page). The SNSF
assesses the submitted NCCR proposals in a
two-stage procedure (pre-proposals, full proposals). The scientific evaluation is executed
by international reviewers. The structural aspects are assessed by Division IV of the Research Council. Based on these findings the
Research Council selects a shortlist of the
most promising proposals and submits it to
the competent Federal Department where
the finals selection is made based on science
policy criteria.
In December 2013 eight new NCCRs of the
4th series have been approved by the Federal
Councillor Johann Schneider-Ammann. They
started their activities in 2014:
• Center for Bio-Inspired Stimuli-Responsive
Materials (Weder Christoph, University of
Fribourg)
• Digital Fabrication – Advanced Building
Processes in Architecture (Kohler Matthias
Daniel, ETHZ)
• Materials’ Revolution: Computational
Design and Discovery of Novel Materials
(Marzari Nicola, EPFL)
• Molecular Systems Engineering (Meier
Wolfgang, University of Basel / ETHZ)
• On the Move: The Migration-Mobility Nexus
(D’Amato Gianni, University of Neuchâtel)
• PlanetS (Benz Willy, University of Bern /
University of Geneva)
• RNA & Disease: Understanding the Role of
RNA Biology in Disease Mechanisms
(Mühlemann Oliver, University of Bern / ETHZ)
• The Mathematics of Physics (SwissMAP)
(Smirnov Stanislav, University of Geneva /
ETHZ)

Emotion in Individual Behaviour
and Social Processes
NCCR Affective Sciences
This interdisciplinary NCCR investigates a phenomenon playing a central role in
human behaviour, decision-making and social interaction: emotion. In order to
study emotion and other affective phenomena, we adopt the perspectives offered
by different disciplines such as psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, literature,
history, sociology, and economics. Three major research topics are addressed
during the third phase: 1) how emotions are elicited 2) how emotions are regulated,
and 3) what the role of emotion is in social interactions. In addition to basic research, special emphasis is placed on the “applied affective sciences” with transfer
partners in the areas of health, work and organizations, economics, and the arts.
The NCCR is also committed to training the new generations of affective scientists,
for instance through our International Summer School in Affective Sciences.

Using Concepts from Nature to Create
‘Smart’ Materials
NCCR Bio-Inspired Materials
The NCCR “Bio-Inspired Materials – Using Concepts from Nature to Create ‘Smart’
Materials” aims to pool the expertise of its members in the fields of chemistry,
physics, materials science, biology and medicine in order to study smart materials inspired by living things and explore their use in potential applications. This
involves devising new design strategies and rules to create and assemble macromolecules and nanoparticles into ordered structures to produce smart materials
with the desired properties. The NCCR’s research activities are organized in three
interconnected, interdisciplinary modules: adaptive materials responding to mechanical stimuli, adaptive materials created through self-assembly, and interactions of adaptive materials with living cells.

Visualisation and Control of
Biological Processes Using Chemistry
NCCR Chemical Biology
The mission of the NCCR “Chemical Biology” is to use chemistry tools to obtain
a better understanding of life at the molecular level. Until now, few technologies
could characterise in detail the countless biochemical activities that constitute
a living cell. In the NCCR chemists, biochemists, physicists and cell biologists
develop innovative techniques based on small molecules and proteins to obtain
new information about cellular processes and control them in vivo. The new
tools will be applicable to various biological phenomena like visualising the
activity of selected proteins during cell division and investigating how membranes
control the activity of proteins in them. The NCCR is also engaged in establishing
a platform for chemical screening aimed at developing a new generation of
molecules with biological effects. The development of new technologies and identification of novel molecules has already led to the creation of several start-ups.

Despite all its shortcomings, democracy is the form of government best suited to
managing the way in which we live together. Democracy can certainly be improved.
For this reason, and due to new developments, we continuously need to reflect upon,
and re-negotiate the rules of democracy. The NCCR Democracy examines two current
trends which are fundamentally transforming democracy: globalization and the growing role of the media in politics. NCCR researchers have been working together on over
50 projects in order to understand which challenges and new opportunities these two
trends entail for democracy. The NCCR focuses on two topics: First, the democratic
quality of international, transnational- and subnational bodies, which increasingly take
up decision-making authority at the detriment of elected national authorities. Second,
the growing populism in European democracies.

Innovative Building Processes
in Architecture
NCCR Digital Fabrication
The “NCCR Digital Fabrication – Innovative Building Processes in Architecture”
aims to secure a leading position for Switzerland in this new and highly interesting sector, which is fast becoming a core discipline of architecture. Through a multidisciplinary approach the disciplines of architecture, engineering, robotics, and
material and computer sciences are brought together in an ambitious partnership
to establish digital technology as an essential part of future building processes.
This new approach combines digitally mediated architectural design with robotic
construction technologies to augment contemporary construction processes. The
benefits of digital construction are evident: efficient use of production resources,
material-specific concepts and durability, thanks to the seamless integration of
design and fabrication.

The Power and Meaning of Images
NCCR Iconic Criticism
Images ignite debates that are central to the way in which our society describes itself.
“The ubiquity of images,” “the flood of digital images,” “spectacle,” “images wars,”
but also positively connoted catchphrases such as “communicating through images,”
“epistemic images“ ensure discussion and are treated as key terms of our era. They
reflect both the hopes as well as the fears that concern the futures of education, of
knowledge, of literate culture, of the arts, and political and economic decision-making
processes. The NCCR gathers ten disciplines in total, from among the Humanities and
social sciences. It investigates iconic phenomena from such diverse areas as the arts,
sciences, economics, city planning, philosophy, and the history of language and writing.

International Trade RegulationFrom Fragmentation to Coherence
NCCR Trade Regulation
NCCR “Trade Regulation” aims to clarify how the world trading system functions and to
explore the drivers of fragmentation and coherence. Implications of the debt crisis, the
ascendance of emerging economies and a proliferation of preferential trade agreements
serve as the backdrop for this NCCR’s third research phase. While multilateralism remains crucial to bringing about greater coherence among policy areas, fragmentation
is increasing in a more complex regulatory environment. This NCCR aims to offer policy
recommendations based on the disciplines of law, economics and political science
through its six thematic research areas: trade governance; new preferentialism in trade;
innovation and creativity in international trade; trade, development and migration;
trade and climate change; and impact assessment in international trade regulation.

Keeping the inner body environment in a homeostatic balance is essential for
proper body function and thus for healthy life. The NCCR “Kidney.CH” investigates
the central role that kidneys play in controlling this vital equilibrium. It integrates
leading Swiss specialist in experimental and clinical nephrology from all Swiss
Medical Universities and corresponding hospitals. Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD)
has increased dramatically in recent years leading worldwide to an estimated
850 000 deaths every year. Patients with CKD are further at high risk for other
diseases such as hypertension, atherosclerosis and osteoporosis to name just
a few. The goal of Kidney.CH is to advance knowledge in order to provide a
scientific basis for the potential development of novel preventive, diagnostic
and therapeutic approaches.

Overcoming vulnerability:
life course perspectives
NCCR LIVES
The NCCR “LIVES” conducts longitudinal studies and develops theories to understand
the life-long processes that lead to the many forms of vulnerability in adult life. We
analyse factors and processes that make individuals differentially vulnerable to sources
of stress, the life-long consequences of these factors and processes. Moreover we
analyse resources and actions undertaken by individuals or by their environment to
compensate or overcome vulnerability. Life trajectories of the overall population
confronted with the “new social risks” (growing instability of personal relations, labour
market uncertainty, etc.) and of population groups particularly at risk (e.g. people with
low economic resources, or facing health problems) are scrutinized in a comparative,
longitudinal, and interdisciplinary perspective. Our results will provide stimulus for
action on the level of social policy.

Materials’ Revolution: Computational
Design and Discovery of Novel Materials
NCCR MARVEL
The aim of this NCCR is the accelerated design and discovery of novel materials in order
to achieve improved properties and performance, or to witness the emergence of original physical properties. We will achieve this goal via a materials’ informatics platform of
database-driven high-throughput quantum simulations, powered by 1) advanced electronic-structure capabilities, for predictive accuracy, 2) innovative sampling methods
to explore configuration/composition space, and 3) application of big-data concepts to
computational materials science. The search is targeted to urgent and pressing societal
needs, with a focus on materials for energy harvesting, storage, and conversion, materials for information-and-communication technologies, and the processing and stability of
materials, especially organic crystals and pharmaceuticals.

Mediality – Historical Perspectives
NCCR Mediality
The NCCR focuses on the historicity of media and mediality. It investigates forms of
communication, transfer, and perception before the era of mass-media dominance and
modern teleologically and technologically oriented media discourses. The aim of the
NCCR is a historical mediology, which particularly examines change in communication
practices, new dynamics in medial forms, and reflection on the conditions of communication. In its third phase the limits of the medial are at the centre of the NCCR’s interest. Moments will be systematically analysed in which the display and the apparent
breakdown of mediation are mutually entangled. The main terms in this context will be
ostentation, already used in the previous project phases to denote phenomena of accentuation and displaying, and implosion, indicating disintegration, the collapse of differences, and inner heterogeneity.

Molecular Systems Engineering
NCCR MSE
The NCCR Molecular Systems Engineering will enable and coordinate complementary
approaches from Life Sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Engineering Sciences, and Ethics
to build functional molecular modules into complex synthetic or cellular systems. Such
synthetic systems resemble molecular factories and examples include nanoreactors
equipped with functional modules allowing the chemical modification and transport of
molecular compounds, synthetic photoreceptor cells engineered to restore vision, nanoreactors that convert energy, and functional modules that work in complementary fashion to convey reactants along spatially designed reaction sequences. By opening new
perspectives in the synthesis of chemical, biological and pharmaceutical compounds
and in the development of medical diagnostics and therapeutics, this unique approach
will lead to new technologies, production processes, and industry branches that further
advance the Swiss innovation potential.

The NCCR “MUST” develops new theoretical concepts and spectroscopic methodologies and applies them to unravel ultrafast dynamic processes in the microcosmos of
molecules and solid state materials. The novel techniques encompass for example
multi-dimensional spectroscopy, time-resolved electron diffraction, time-resolved X-ray
absorption and diffraction, or attosecond VUV spectroscopy. They are fundamental
for further developing our understanding of the dynamics of chemical reactions, the
charge transport in molecules, the signal processing in bio-molecules, or the complex
interplay of different sub-systems in strongly correlated solid state materials. A deeper
understanding of matter at a microscopic level is also crucial for dealing with societal
challenges such as the quest for alternative energy sources or the development of next
generation materials.

The Migration-Mobility Nexus
NCCR On the Move
Migration to Switzerland has undergone a fundamental change in recent years. In the
past long-term immigration prevailed. In the meantime the situation has changed as
a result of evolving national and European legislation as well as bilateral economic
agreements. Closely interlinked national and global markets have further led to an
increase in temporary forms of mobility. The migratory reality today is thus highly complex and, so far, basically no systematic research has been conducted on it. The NCCR
“On the Move – The Migration-Mobility Nexus” aims to better understand the changed
migration and mobility patterns of today and its consequences for the State, the economy and society at large. It brings together eighteen research projects from social sciences, economics and law.

The discovery by Swiss astronomers of the first giant planet outside our solar system
in 1995 spawned a unique revolution in modern astronomy. Fundamentally, we have
already learned that planets are common objects and that planetary systems are much
more diverse than originally predicted. This has pointed out the absolute necessity
to combine the knowledge acquired by exploring our solar system with that derived
by studying exoplanets. As we move from an era of discovery to one of physical and
chemical characterization, the NCCR PlanetS will lay the foundation for an integrated
research effort in planetary sciences. Combining astronomical observations, measurements by spacecraft of solar system bodies, laboratory measurements, and theoretical
modeling, will catalyze a phase change in the breadth and depth of the research carried out in Switzerland in this area.

Quantum Science and Technology
NCCR QSIT
The NCCR “QSIT” is active in a field, which unites the key discoveries of the 20th century: quantum physics and information theory. In future, research in this field will
strongly influence science and technology. Potential applications are primarily focused
in the area of computer science and sensors. The NCCR “QSIT” takes a multi-disciplinary approach, combining concepts from physics, chemistry, engineering and computer sciences. Researchers from many Swiss universities and basic researchers from
industry work together in the NCCR network. Their two common goals are to develop
applications in the area of quantum computer science and to investigate new paradigms in physical basic research such as the order and states of material.

The NCCR “RNA & Disease – The Role of RNA Biology in Disease Mechanisms” studies
a class of molecules that has long been neglected: RNA (ribonucleic acid) is pivotal for
many vital processes and has much more complex functions than initially assumed.
For instance, RNA defines the conditions, in a given cell, under which a given gene is
activated and to what extent. If any part of this process of genetic regulation breaks
down or does not run smoothly, this can cause many different diseases including heart
disease, cancer, neurological and metabolic disorders. The NCCR brings together Swiss
research groups studying different aspects of RNA biology in various organisms such as
yeast, plants, roundworms, mice and human cells. By identifying the regulatory mechanisms that go off course during an illness, the NCCR will also be able to point out new
therapeutic targets and help counter the biggest causes of death.

Physicists use the language of mathematics to describe the processes that they observe. However, mathematics is more than a language. It is also a collection of complex, evolving ideas. At the threshold between theoretical physics and mathematics
– where the mathematician’s stringency and the physicist’s intuition bear the greatest
fruit – both sides benefit from closer cooperation. Physics wins when it can use mathematics to better describe nature and the cosmos; mathematics wins when the description of natural phenomena gives it a deeper understanding of the objects it uses.
The National Centre of Competence in Research (NCCR) “SwissMAP” aims to take this
melding of minds to the next level and establish an internationally renowned “Swiss
Institute for Advanced Research in Mathematics and Physics”. The objective is to create
a place where researchers can focus on fundamental questions, such as whether string
theory really is suitable for describing all of the known force fields and interactions in a
uniform “Theory of Everything”.

The synaptic bases of mental diseases
NCCR SYNAPSY
The aim of the NCCR “SYNAPSY” is to develop an ambitious translational programme linking neuroscience to psychiatry with the aim to uncover the pathogenetic neurobiological mechanisms underlying mental and cognitive disorders.
This will be achieved by bringing together a group of internationally recognized
basic neuroscientists active in cutting-edge research relevant to higher brain functions with research-oriented academic psychiatrists. In addition to the expected
scientific outcomes, this NCCR will have an important clinical and societal impact:
based on the understanding of the biological mechanisms underlying mental
disorders, one can expect the development of novel preventive and therapeutic
approaches which ultimately will improve the quality of life of patients. It will
also contribute to the emergence of a new generation of clinical psychiatrists
with a strong neuroscientific background.

From transport physiology to
identification of therapeutic targets
NCCR TransCure
The NCCR “TransCure” seeks to integrate the disciplines of physiology, structural
biology and chemistry with a focus on membrane transport proteins. These proteins are essential in nearly all aspects of human physiology and play an important
role in therapeutic discovery. Their dysfunction contributes to a myriad of diseases
ranging from neurodegeneration, epilepsy and cardiac disorders to cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis. The researchers aim to achieve a more profound understanding of the structures, mechanisms and pathophysiological roles of selected
membrane transport proteins. Linking these basic scientific advancements to a
translational approach, TransCure will bridge an in-depth understanding of membrane transport proteins to the development of novel therapeutic opportunities.

Overview of terminated NCCRs
1st Call (2001-2013)
The 1st call for submissions to set up NCCRs was published in January 1999. Priority was given to four areas of
research: life sciences, social sciences and humanities, sustainable development and environment, information and
communication technologies. The budget was also made available to projects involving promising topics from
outside these priority areas. The SNSF assessed 82 pre-proposals and 34 full proposals. The SNSF presented
18 full pro-posals of outstanding merit to the Federal Department of Home Affairs, which made the final selection
of 14 NCCRs in December 2000.
All 14 NCCRs that started in 2001 could be granted two extensions of four years each on the basis of encouraging
interim evaluations. Hence, they concluded their work in 2013. The data below illustrate the various achievements
of the NCCRs (statistic data as at: 11 December 2013). Further details can be found on the website of each NCCR
and on the SNSF website www.nccr.ch.
