The funding for the new center is made possible through direct investment by both USI and the Cardiocentro Ticino.

The greater part of the funds comes from four private foundations, namely the Theo Rossi di Montelera Foundation, the Metis Foundation Sergio Mantegazza, the Fidinam Foundation, and the Horten Foundation. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to these organizations for their generous support.

Individual projects

Individual projects within the center have been funded by SNF and the Swiss national initiative PASC  (Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing), and supported with runtime on national high-performance computing systems by the Swiss National Supercomputing Center CSCS.
