Science-Switzerland: connecting the world with Swiss Science-driven Innovation & Education
How did Switzerland retain the coveted title of the world’s most innovative country for the past 10 consecutive years? Despite being a small Alpine nation with no natural resources nestled at the heart of Europe, Switzerland has been dominating regionally as top innovation champion according to the European Innovation Scoreboard, while Swiss startups also have above-average survival rates when compared internationally, at over 93% after five years for some institutions. Thanks to its openness, excellent framework conditions, bottom-up approach and fair competition for funding, Switzerland was able to establishes itself as a hotspot for leading research and education while being strongly committed to international research and innovation cooperation on the world stage.
With the goal of fostering collaboration and exchange between Switzerland and other prominent global innovation hubs, Science-Switzerland - an online platform providing executive summaries of top-highlights on new discoveries in Swiss science - is open for use by researchers, entrepreneurs, policymakers, university professors, students and the general public to gain insights into cutting-edge Swiss science & technology developments. Powered by the vast Science-Switzerland database, the platform is populated with over a decade of articles sorted by topics, sources and dates. The tool also allows users to generate instantaneous reports on specific fields or topics, and all content is easily shareable via email or social media.
