Entrepreneurs can only turn brilliant ideas into marketable innovations with the help of strong research institutions and clever researchers. This is why the CTI supports research in Switzerland.
The CTI offers you a wide-range of funding opportunities. These all have the same aim: to put you, the researcher, in closer touch with businesses and encourage the transfer of knowledge and technology. This means you can turn companies’ ideas which would otherwise go unused into marketable innovations. And you can benefit too, not only from the research funding you can use to conduct interesting applied research, but also from the contacts and networking opportunities with your industrial partners.
Which researchers does the CTI support?
Basic criteria for research institutions:
- You are a research manager at a university or other CTI-recognised research institution.
- You focus on applied research into the latest technologies or knowledge.
- Your funding application can be in any scientific discipline. It should, however, display a strong potential for interdisciplinary innovation.
- A company selects you as a research partner in a CTI project.
