Switzerland regularly ranks as the most innovative country in the world. What’s this small country’s recipe for success? For one thing, it is education. Swiss technical schools and universities rank among the world’s best and are an important basis for innovation. But in order for universities to produce marketable products and services, they need strong ties to the economy.
In order to facilitate the collaboration between academia and industry, Switzerland Innovation offers universities and companies the grounds to collaborate and to use each others’ research results for the development of marketable products and services. With its five nationwide hubs – Park Basel Area, Park Innovaare, Park Zurich, Park Network West EPFL, and Park Biel/Bienne – Switzerland Innovation provides fertile grounds for innovation and reinforces Switzerland as one of the most innovative countries in the world.
