Switzerland as a driver of innovation

As one of the world's leading innovation countries, Switzerland has the opportunity to make its unique technological know-how and innovation skills available to society by supporting entrepreneurial solutions that have the potential to achieve a sustainable impact in a comprehensive sense, i.e. in economic, environmental and social terms.

Through the Switzerland Innovation Parks network, the partners of this initiative receive direct added value and visibility through the projects supported, the annual demonstration event (Demo Day) and through preferential access to the network's ecosystem.

Switzerland Innovation is a network of six innovation parks across Switzerland, based on a joint initiative of public institutions, universities and the private sector, with a legal mandate from the federal government. Together with its partners, Switzerland Innovation forms an ecosystem that accelerates the translation of research results into marketable products and services.
