NTN - Innovation Boosters

The NTN – Innovation Boosters play a role as part of the innovation chain and draw on existing synergies. In so doing, they focus on the needs of the innovation stakeholders, ranging from the selection of themes to the needs for further support outside the NTN – Innovation Boosters.

Subsidy: max. CHF 500,000 annually

Funding rate: TBD

Deadlines: 26 March 2021

Project duration: 4 years

Consortium: The NTN – Innovation Boosters bring together various interested parties from universities (researchers, students, scientific officers), business (start-ups, SMEs, larger companies, industry associations) and society (authorities and public administration, public or semi-public organisations (hospitals, public transport companies, etc.), associations) around a relevant innovation theme. They stimulate an exchange between them and support the formation of heterogeneous, interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral innovation teams.

Scope: The NTN – Innovation Boosters bring together interested teams from universities, business and society at national level around a defined innovation theme and stimulate the emergence and testing of concrete innovation ideas.

Themes of economic relevance are to be addressed in an innovative manner: new scientific findings provide important momentum and may lead to the launch of process, product or service innovations in the foreseeable future. The novel applications can impact both industry and the services sector.

Innovation ideas should consider all important aspects from the outset and actively include both the customers’ needs and the framework conditions of the implementation partners to ensure a successful market launch right from the onset. Customers’ needs, feasibility and profitability should be the focus of the NTN – Innovation Booster.
