Projects
Pioneer projects

Pioneer projects are particularly innovative projects, but relatively limited in terms of time and budget, and necessarily coordinated by a Federal Scientific Institution (FSI).

The pioneer projects enable the exploration of research paths that are beyond the state of the art and despite a higher risk of scientific failure give the prospect of significant impact on the long term. They promote the development of highly innovative concepts, unconventional methodologies or, to some extent, unprecedented interdisciplinary collaboration, and the emergence of new research areas.
