  •  Intensive investments in R&D (3% of GDP), 60% of which coming from the private sector. 

  • Presence of world renowned technical schools and universities (i.e. ETH Zurich, EPFL) providing the market with a constant flow of highly skilled workforce, technologies and spinoff companies.
     

  • A solid startup ecosystem with more than 300 startups founded every year.  
     

  • Concentration of a large number of multinational innovation driven companies (i.e. Novartis, Roche, Google, IBM …).
