What was the initial situation?

Many innovative companies and institutions enrich the Swiss economic area and contribute to Switzerland's first place in the innovation ranking of the Global Innovation Index. In order to maintain this top position and create added value for a global society, cross-organizational innovation is becoming increasingly important. The increase in complexity and speed as well as rapid technological change make this essential.

Switzerland already has a comprehensive innovation ecosystem. We have ten universities, two ETHs, various universities of applied sciences and other private research institutions that collaborate intensively with business. This ecosystem was further expanded by the creation of Switzerland Innovation with the regional innovation parks. At the moment, the innovation infrastructure is strongly focused on "hardware" - buildings, laboratories and other innovation-promoting infrastructure. An integral, digital and open portal for digital networking and collaboration is missing. We want to change this and digitally expand the Swiss innovation infrastructure with an open Joint Innovation Portal.

What are our goals?

  • Development of a cloud-based community platform that unites all innovation actors.
  • People, projects, tenders, institution and events are connected digitally beyond their existing boundaries in a faster and targeted way. The platform does not replace physical collaboration, but extends it.
  • The platform makes it possible to present people, projects, organizations and events related to Joint Innovation in an attractive and interactive way.
  • The platform enables the identification of common challenges and equips them with resources.
  • The platform enables Joint Innovation projects to be guided through the various phases of the innovation process - always tailored to the needs of the users.

Outlook and Next Steps.

The platform is constantly being further developed. We are currently expanding the platform with specific requirements in order to network research institutions more quickly and easily. In addition, we are developing a recommender system to provide information accurately in the future.
