Impact of Innosuisse funding

With its innovation funding, Innosuisse aims to contribute towards sustainable economic, social and ecological development. In order to routinely and systematically measure the impact of its funding, Innosuisse has been conducting impact monitoring since 2021. This is supplemented by additional and external impact analyses and studies on impact-oriented topics. Selected examples provide a detailed insight into the impact-oriented results of the funding.

The long-term impact goals of innovation promotion can be assigned to six thrusts (outcomes):

Impact goals

Impact monitoring

Systematic impact monitoring is conducted for completed innovation projects and for start-up core coaching. This means that the benefits of innovation promotion can now be demonstrated by means of concrete figures and its development tracked over time. Impact monitoring is conducted annually and is being continuously expanded to include further funding instruments or programmes.

A world first rolls off the production line

Lausanne-based start-up Global ID wants to revolutionise biometric identification – with vein scanning. Innosuisse facilitated the development of this technology as part of an innovation project with the EPFL. This world first brings with it great benefits: 100 jobs are to be created in Switzerland by 2030.
