This chapter examines the changes that have taken place in the political organization of research and its possible consequences for research behaviour and research performance by analysing a specific corporate actor, the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) as Switzerland's main funding agency, and its funding instruments. First, it briefly presents the position of the SNSF in the Swiss public science system. It discusses the establishment of the SNSF in the early 1950s then analyses the institutionalization of three funding instruments that characterize the key changes in governance rationales during the second part of the 20th century.

Keywords:   Swiss National Science Foundation, funding agency, funding instruments, government funding, public science system
