In 2013, the Swiss-Swedish Innovation Initiative (SWII) was launched, in which companies with their R&D departments, innovative SMEs and start-ups, and universities work together to create new industry partnerships co-funded by EUREKA/Eurostars. This networking initiative will now be further developed in the longer term. On 14 June, Innosuisse and the Swedish innovation agency Vinnova therefore signed an agreement for long-term and close cooperation.

Further information on the strengthened cooperation between the two countries can be found here.


Save the date:

SWII 2021 will take place in Neuchâtel on 9 November with the focus on «Additive Manufacturing & Lightweight Technologies». The topic «Lightweight Technologies» is especially designed for the members of CU Switzerland. CU Switzerland is a partner of the event and has collaborated with LIGHTer on the programme.

SWII is also part of this year’s Trade Mission Sweden, which CU Switzerland is organising. More information will follow.
