From Micro-idea to Macro-success
In 2019, Switzerland was named #1 in the Global Innovation Index, leading the way in ‘knowledge & technology outputs’ and ‘creativity’.
At the centre of Switzerland’s innovation ecosystem is the Canton of Neuchâtel, home to the Swiss watchmaking industry. Here, precision skills developed by Omega, Breitling, Cartier & Tag Heuer have spawned outstanding expertise in micro & nanotechnology, microfabrication and life-sciences. It is also building a strong reputation for blockchain & crypto.
Ideally located between Geneva and Zurich and with easy access to France, Germany & Italy, Neuchâtel has attracted global corporates including Glenmark, Johnson & Johnson and On Semiconductor as well as fast-growth businesses such as BITY and Wireless Zoo by Alpha Vet Tech.
These companies have been drawn by; the region’s strengths in miniaturisation and commercialisation of ideas; Neuchâtel’s innovation hub, Microcity, and its network of 6,000 apprentices, 7,000 students and 1,000 researchers; as well as the expertise of the Swiss Centre of Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM) in converting ground-breaking research into innovative products, including the first solar powered plane.
Neuchâtel offers the optimum combination of skilled personnel, supply-chain opportunities, research and innovation programmes and a low-risk springboard into the Swiss and major European markets.
