Cooperation agreements are currently in place with South Korea and Canada.

Since 2013 (declaration of intent between the two agencies) KIAT and Innosuisse have built up their international cooperation by issuing joint calls for proposal for science-based innovation projects implemented by partners from Switzerland and South Korea by pooling the funding opportunities of all institutions.
