How to find the appropriate NTN Innovation Booster and further information

NTN Innovation Boosters foster a culture of open innovation. Their activities are open to all Swiss actors who are interested. They promote the transfer of knowledge between research, business and society and foster cooperation with partners along the entire value chain of a theme. In doing so, they create sustainable competitive advantages for Swiss SMEs in particular.

The following NTN Innovation Boosters and their innovation themes are available to you:


Together with all interested actors, the NTN Innovation Boosters formulate concrete working topics within their respective innovation themes and develop them in interdisciplinary innovation teams. They teach the teams methods for agile ideas development.

They support promising innovation ideas with direct funding contributions. Selected teams can use them to test their hypotheses and work out a basis for decision-making in order to further develop their idea or to have the necessary expertise to know when to abandon it.

An NTN Innovation Booster assists successful innovation teams in initiating projects for which they can request support from Innosuisse or other public and private bodies (e.g. innovation mentoring).


This page will be updated shortly with the information on the new NTN Innovation Boosters that Innosuisse will approve for the funding period 2022-2025. The next call for proposals is planned for November 2022 to March 2023 (deadline).
