The Innosuisse innovation cheque is an important tool for SMEs and start-ups to strengthen their innovation potential and reduce innovation risks. It also supports the growth and performance of innovative companies. More than three quarters of innovation ideas continue to be pursued upon completion of the preliminary study. These are the results of a survey conducted by INFRAS as part of Innosuisse’s impact monitoring.
Innosuisse and the SNSF have developed a well-coordinated support offer in Switzerland’s complex start-up ecosystem. This covers the entire innovation chain (from basic knowledge to the founding of start-ups). This is the core result of an external study.
Innosuisse and the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) have been collaborating together on the BRIDGE programme since 2017. The two sponsoring organisations have had the 2017–2020 pilot phase evaluated externally. The results now available confirm that the programme meets a need among researchers and covers an existing gap between basic research and science-based innovation. BRIDGE is an important strategic instrument for collaboration between Innosuisse and the SNSF.
In order to measure the impact of its funding, Innosuisse has been conducting impact monitoring for all completed innovation projects and start-up coachings.
KOF ETH Zurich surveys Swiss companies every two years on their innovation behaviour. Innosuisse takes part in the survey.
Innosuisse implemented the Energy funding programme between 2013 and 2020. This was part of the “Swiss Coordinated Energy Research”
The holistic analysis is intended to support Innosuisse in the further development of the programme, with a view to offering a programme that is needs and future-oriented, impactful and complementary.
In order to measure the impact of the funding used, Innosuisse has been conducting systematic impact monitoring for all completed innovation projects since the beginning of 2021.
