Get support for your innovation project

Our innovation mentors know the Swiss innovation scene like the back of their hand and can introduce you to a range of funding instruments. They can make it easier for you to access technology and research and help you to launch an innovation project together with a public-sector research partner. Take advantage of this free service.

Who can apply for support?

You work for an SME that has fewer than 250 employees (full-time equivalents), is based in Switzerland and has questions such as:

  • Our SME has an innovative idea, what are the next steps?
  • Who can provide me with an overview of the different research institutions for innovation projects?
  • Is our SME even allowed to apply for Innosuisse funding?
  • Does my project have a chance of being funded by Innosuisse?

Then apply for the Basic Support voucher

  • Our SME is pursuing an innovative idea but needs more research skills. How and where do we get them?
  • Which research institution is the best match for my innovation project?

Then apply for the Partner Support voucher

  • How do I put together a project application for Innosuisse or another funding body (e.g. also for international funding programmes in which Switzerland participates)?
  • How do I conclude contracts with my project partners?
  • How do I settle patent matters with my contractual partner?

Then apply for the Application Support voucher

  • How do I revise a funding application such as one for an Innosuisse project that has previously been rejected?

Then apply for the Revision Support voucher

Please note: You can also apply for the Basic Support, Partner Support and Application Support credit all at the same time.
