Bilateral projects with United Kingdom

Switzerland and the United Kingdom signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) in Nov 2022 to deepen cooperation in research and innovation. In recognition of this MoU, Innosuisse cooperates with Innovate UK to support bilateral innovation projects.

The objective of this agreement is to encourage collaboration between Swiss and UK companies and research organisations to promote the exchange of knowledge and expertise, to establish sustainable partnerships and to increase business development opportunities. This enables companies to expand their competitive advantage by developing new products, improving technical processes or devising solutions. These innovations must offer added value for the economy, society or the environment.
