National Research Programme 78

The Swiss National Science Foundation’s National Research Programme 78 (NRP 78) was launched in 2020 to gain new insights into Covid-19, develop recommendations for clinical management and healthcare, and advance the development of vaccines, treatments and diagnostics.

Mark B├Ącher is the Head of Knowledge Transfer for this research programme, and Life Science Communication is supporting the programme’s communication activities. This includes social media activities, the management of a YouTube channel and media relations.

In addition to several programme conferences for knowledge transfer, including the SNSF Corona research conference in March 2023, several dialogue events were also held, such as a national event in Bern in collaboration with the Swiss Federation of Trade and Industry (sgv).
