Switzerland is fully associated to H2020!

As of December 2016 Switzerland is again fully associated to H2020. Because of the partial association of CH to the excellence-pillar from 9.14-12.16, researchers based in CH were eligible to ERC funding for almost the entire duration of the non-association, would however have lost access to ERC funding for the rest of H2020 if CH could not have become fully associated to H2020 from 2017 onwards.
