Since 2016 the NOMIS Foundation has generously supported NOMIS Fellows at eikones.


NOMIS is a private Swiss foundation that supports insight-driven scientific endeavors across all disciplines, placing particular emphasis on the researcher. The NOMIS Foundation seeks to “create a spark” in the world of science by funding highly innovative, groundbreaking research in the natural sciences, social sciences and the humanities.

NOMIS funds research projects led by dedicated pioneers who use radically different approaches, apply new expertise or engage novel disciplinary or interdisciplinary perspectives. Beyond their scientific excellence these researchers show intrinsic motivation and the ability to inspire and collaborate with others not only within but also outside their own fields of expertise; they combine their passion for scientific discovery with their dynamic, engaging and influential leadership talent. It is these qualities that contribute to the foundation’s mission of fostering role models who have the potential to multiply the impact of our research funding.
