Facts and figures

The projects we support are evenly distributed across the different Life Science disciplines and across all cantons – in particular, linking the peripheric regions to innovation hotspots in the country.

Innovators’ success stories

Some of our innovators share their success stories here. These are stories about innovators who think out of the box. Through INARTIS NETWORK, they found the support they need.

Achievements across Switzerland

Since its launch in 2013, INARTIS NETWORK has

  • enabled over 130 R&D projects across Switzerland to get off the ground;
  • helped secure over CHF 50 million in public funding for those projects.

The projects we support are evenly distributed across the different Life Science disciplines and across all cantons – in particular, linking outlying regions to innovation hotspots in the country.

Key success factors

If you think about starting a Life Science R&D project with Innosuisse, here is our checklist for success:

  • Does my project idea have a sufficient degree of innovation? Does it show new state of the art?
  • Is my scientific content well thought through and well structured?
  • Are my project partners the best match? And do we form the dream team?
  • Will my innovation hit the market and create real sustainable value in Switzerland?

Innovators’ success stories

Yet numbers tell only part of the story. Some of our innovators share their success stories here. These are stories about innovators who think out of the box. They go beyond their discipline to take their ideas forward. And, through INARTIS NETWORK, they found the support they need to turn science into innovation – made in Switzerland.

Biomech Innovations: Making a technological leap

With a growing ageing population, the incidence of bone fractures will rise. Biomech Innovations AG, developed an innovative variable fixation technology to speed the healing and reduce complications.

Helping Vivent accelerate innovation

When stressed by pests, diseases or environmental factors, plants emit tiny electrical signals. If a cost-effective system could capture, analyse and translate those signals automatically, crop researchers, growers and suppliers could use the data to boost crop yields, reduce crop losses or use less crop protection.
