The new-generation National Thematic Networks (NTNs) backed by Innosuisse are intended in future to support innovators from academia, business and society at large more directly in the development and testing of new, viable innovation ideas.
Lorenz Gubler and his team from the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) have received a "Discovery" grant as part of the BRIDGE programme. Lorenz Gubler and his team are developing cheaper and more efficient components for redox flow batteries. The project manager hopes that these technologies will find a place in solar or wind farms.
Innosuisse’s Innovation Council has approved a range of measures to simplify the process for submitting an application. The changes focus primarily on costings and on IP agreements. Innovation Council Chairman Bernhard Eschermann explains what is new and what exactly this means for project partners.
Innosuisse wants to regularly assess the benefits and economic impact of its own and the CTI’s start-up promotion activities. For this reason it is calling on all start-ups accepted for coaching since 2005 to participate in another survey.
