Innosuisse is the Swiss Innovation Agency. Its role is to promote science-based innovation in the interest of the economy and society in Switzerland.

Moving the world with Swiss innovation

Nowadays, the key to economic success is a combination of knowledge, research and development. Innosuisse therefore promotes innovation - efficiently, close to the market and in a connected way. The agency supports the partnership between academia and the market with innovation projects, networking, training and coaching, laying the groundwork for successful Swiss start-ups as well as innovative products and services by SMEs and other innovative organisations.

Three values guide Innosuisse's activities:

  • Integrity: We are honest, responsible and fair
  • Open-mindedness: We are curious, future-oriented and partnership-based
  • Drive: We are audacious, solution-oriented and effective.

Innosuisse is a federal entity under public law with a separate legal personality. It provides support in accordance with the subsidiarity principle: it only supports projects if the innovation could not be implemented and market potential would not be tapped into without funding. 

Under Legal basis, we outline details of the legal framework into which Innosuisse is integrated. 

Under Organisation, you can find out who works for Innosuisse.
