The SCNAT developed roadmaps for large research infrastructures in which the needs of the different scientific communities are collated. These community roadmaps are aimed at feeding into the Swiss Roadmap for Research Infrastructures, elaborated by SERI.

In 2021, the SCNAT published a first series of community roadmaps, including the Chemistry Roadmap. On the basis of the community roadmaps 2021, SERI has released the 2023 Swiss Roadmap for Research Infrastructures on June 2nd, 2023 (link).

Current status of the Roadmap 2027 (Sept 2023)

Based on the feedback they have received on the previous roadmap procedure, the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) has decided to redefine the whole process for both the Swiss and the community roadmaps. While we appreciate that the process is being re-thought to increase its transparency and inclusivity, this also means that the content of the SERI mandate to SCNAT is still being worked out. Aware that time is of the essence, we are on stand-by for the starting the process as soon as there are more details provided in a mandate to start our work on the chemistry community roadmap.

Information on an updated series of these community roadmaps will follow as soon as we know more. If you want to be informed, please send an e-mail to .
