From idea to innovation: promoting research in Switzerland

Förderangebote für Forschende

SMEs in particular require strong research partners in the public sector to help them transform their ideas into innovations. The CTI aims to make public research expertise accessible to entrepreneurs.

We present you with different ways of offering your research skills to companies, from research and development (R&D projects) through various networking opportunities with companies to networked projects in which you can develop marketable innovations in partnership with foreign research institutions.
