Promotion of innovation by Innosuisse
Innosuisse, the federal funding agency, supports and accelerates innovation processes by providing financial support for innovation projects between companies (implementation partners, mostly SMEs) and research institutions (research partners) in all disciplines and from all sectors within the framework of innovation funding. The projects serve the development of new products, services, processes or business models which help the implementation partners to strengthen their market position or to optimise their public services. In addition to actual ICT projects, many projects from other areas (e.g. life sciences, social sciences) in which questions of digitisation are central are funded.
The funded projects also contribute to the practice-oriented training of young scientists. Innosuisse also supports science-based start-ups with coaching measures and helps them open up international markets. Specific measures in the field of knowledge and technology transfer help universities, industry and society to network better and generate new innovation projects.
