INNOVATE WITH ACCELERATOR TECHNOLOGIES!

BIC of CERN Technologies program

New Entrepreneurship Program: The Business Incubation Centre (BIC) of CERN Technologies

Switzerland hosts some of the world's largest research centres: CERN and the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). Here, thousands of engineers and scientists work together to overcome many technological challenges and bring science and industry one step closer to a breakthough. Join our info-event to see if their know-how could help you in your technological endeavours.


Today, CERN and PSI plan, build and operate some of the most sophisticated research facilities in the world that require unique technological solutions. The know-how and the intellectual property generated by this activity is now available for start-ups and high-tech SMEs willing to implement it in their product/service. The know-how and the intellectual property generated by this activity is now available for start-ups and high-tech SMEs. The span of accelerator and related technologies applications includes data storage, sensors, detectors, mechatronics, Industry 4.0 solutions, machine-learning, imaging, medical and bio-medical application, drones, vacuum technologies, metrology, electronic devices, metal surface polishing, 3-D tracking, integrated circuits, power converters, cooling systems, and many more.

With the new entrepreneurship program of the Business Incubation Centre (BIC) of CERN Technologies, OUT-OF-THE-BOX THINKING START-UPS, as well as high-tech entrepreneurs and SME less than two years on the market, have now the unique opportunity to benefit from privileged access to the know-how and IP from the leading scientific hubs of Europe.

To give you the first glimpse on the broad scope of application, here are a few examples of successfully implemented CERN and PSI technologies.

For a more comprehensive overview of technological solutions enabled by Big Science and their possible application within your product/service, we invite you to join our info-event "INNOVATE WITH ACCELERATOR TECHNOLOGIES". There you will:

  • learn more about the BIC of CERN Technologies program
  • meet CERN and PSI technology transfer experts
  • hear from former participants about their expereinces
  • find inspiration for your next technological breakthrough

Funding opportunities at PARK INNOVAARE

Financing technology projects with non-dilutive instruments

Whether or not companies succeed with innovation depends to a large extent on having access to the necessary financial resources. The type and number of available financing instruments in science-related or technology-oriented industries are manifold. To give you an overview, PARK INNOVAARE invites you to its regular info event - Funding.


Funding your innovation ideas. Particularly interesting in this context are those sources that directly benefit the companies and do not result in a dilution of their own company shares (i.e. non-dilutive) and/or show a non-monetary added value which is potentially significant. Such instruments and possibilities do indeed exist, and we would like to introduce them to you:

Special focus: SME Instrument & Fast Track to Innovation (FTI). Since the beginning of 2017, Switzerland has had access to two financing instruments through the EU program «Horizon 2020»: the SME Instrument and the FTI. With those instruments up to 3 Mio EUR can be obtained, with or without the participation of academic partners.

Bundesbürgschaft (Switzerland Innovation): with the Swiss federal guarantee PARK INNOVAARE has now a proprietary instrument for financing support that allows technology companies of all sizes to benefit from bank loans at significantly reduced rates.

Business Angel Club Aargau: the Canton of Aargau maintains a wide range of contacts with Business Angels and is expanding these contacts with the «Business Angel Club Aargau». What is in for company founders and start-ups? How can a founder find the right Business Angel?

Other non-dilutive funds in the region: the Hightech Zentrum Aargau (HTZ), based in Brugg, offers access to funding schemes, among feasibility studies funded by HTZ, Forschungsfonds Aargau, NanoArgovia projects or Technologiefonds. HTZ is also an access point for Innosuisse support.
