Advanced Manufacturing in Switzerland

Celebrating the 60th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Korea and Switzerland, global leaders in manufacturing, the Swiss Business Hub Korea is hosting a seminar on the Swiss advanced manufacturing ecosystem and the Switzerland Innovation network, an open innovation platform.

Thanks to its traditional watch, MEM (mechanical, electrical, and metal), and medtech industry, Switzerland has developed a highly industrialized precision manufacturing cluster over the years and now holds a leading position in industry 4.0. Switzerland Innovation Parks, open innovation hubs across the country, offer ideal conditions for international companies to learn about new technologies and proceed with their research activities to quickly transform innovations into marketable products based on the close cooperation between leading research centers, higher-education institutions, and the industry. 

Some of the biggest strengths of the Swiss advanced manufacturing ecosystem are: 1) stable business environment and value chain, 2) networking and collaboration opportunities with leading universities, research institutes, and companies in Switzerland, 3) sourcing of highly-educated workers and flexible labor laws, 4) ‘Swiss made’ brand image that comes with high credibility and quality, 5) access to infrastructure such as office space, labs, research facilities at Switzerland Innovation Parks. 

If you are considering expanding your business to Europe or an overseas R&D collaboration, please join this seminar and learn more about the ecosystem by sending a registration request through the link below. After reviewing your request, the Swiss Business Hub Korea team will send you an e-mail invitation to the event.
