Factsheet: Performing Arts Research Grants

Pro Helvetia supports thematic and artistic research by independent companies and artists from Switzerland. Research is not required to result in public presentation or a project. Conversely, companies or artists whose research is supported are not automatically eligible for production grants.

To be eligible for support, the companies or artists must have been professionally active cross-regionally and/or internationally for several years and regularly receive grants for tours from Pro Helvetia.


  • A research grant may cover all costs associated with carrying out the project.
  • The maximum contribution amounts to CHF 10,000.
