Thanks to its unique expertise and technological competences, Switzerland has an opportunity to foster innovative entrepreneurial solutions with a sustainable impact in a comprehensive sense, i. e., in economic, environment, and societal terms.
The objective of the Switzerland Innovation Tech4Impact initiative is to facilitate the realization of innovation projects that tackle society’s most pressing challenges of our time, focusing on selected themes of the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
In this second call for proposals, the initiative awarded six teams tackling diverse SDGs with a one-year project grant of CHF 85’000 each. Their novel approaches will now be further developed in one of the six Switzerland Innovation Parks. (Find out more: https://sitech4impact.ch/)
