The SLSA finances its projects from subsidies of the Swiss Confederation and the govenment of the Principality Liechtenstein as well as from annual contributions from the Foundation members. These regular proceeds form a solid basis and enable the Foundation to enter into long-term commitments.

On the other hand, the SLSA primarily owes the diversity of ist archaeological projects to its patrons and sponsors. By the end of 2001, project-bound donations amounting to almost 2.09 million Swiss francs had been spent on the projects whilst the SLSA supported these projects with ist own contributions from subsidies and non-project-bound contributions amounting to 3.24 million Swiss francs.

Due to its high scientific quality, the archaeological projects of the SLSA are highly acclaimed in specialist and media circles. Via project-related development cooperation with the respective countries, the SLSA also represents the interests of the Swiss government abroad and thus helps to cultivate the image of Switzerland.

As a sponsor of SLSA, this offers you a series of interesting advantages:

  • an internationally operating company can profit from the good reputation of the SLSA. It can generate goodwill in the respective country and also make cultural relationships.
  • You have the right to first-hand information.
  • You can participate in the social-cultural events of the SLSA, i.e. lectures, various symposium events, guided tours at museum exhibitions.
  • You can use the dense contact network of the SLSA.

At the moment, choosing a sponsorship is especially attractive because the SLSA has included four new projects in Syria, Croatia, Peru and Indonesia in its programme. On request, we will gladly send you our information brochure.

The Secretary General Dr. Eberhard Fischer is at your disposal when it comes to detailed information. If you are interested in a special kind of project, he will organize a meeting for you with the respective project manager.
