For years, Switzerland has been the most innovative country in the world. What makes us so successful? The key word is education. Swiss schools and universities are among the best in the world and form the foundation of our innovative strength. Yet for our leading education and research to produce marketable products and services, our universities must have the best possible links to the economy.
This is where Switzerland Innovation comes in, with five sites nationwide offering universities and companies the opportunity to network. This exchange between science and the economy allows ideas to be developed further – to produce products and services that can be marketed successfully. At the same time, working together closely in a single space accelerates the development processes for all parties. This leads to successful innovation.
Switzerland Innovation creates a platform for domestic and international companies of all kinds – a platform allowing companies to further their research activities in partnership with our universities and higher-education institutions. The sharing of ideas between researchers, talented individuals, and innovative entrepreneurs creates breeding grounds for innovation.
For Switzerland, the launch of Switzerland Innovation with its five sites nationwide represents a milestone. Because innovation is the basis for our nation’s economic success – and thus the guarantee for our prosperity.
