Bern - Swissnex organized more than 360 events in 2023, with the aim of connecting Switzerland with the most innovative regions of the world. In Osaka, a new main location has been opened, while a new innovation platform has been launched in India. Nearly 100 start-ups took part in boot camps with a focus on internationalization.

Swissnex has presented its Annual Report 2023, in which the global network that connects Switzerland with the world in the areas of education, research and innovation describes the projects and events it realized across the previous year.

According to the report, in collaboration with Swiss organizations and international partners, Swissnex helped to organize more than 360 events and activities at its six main locations and 20 Science Counselors in Swiss embassies worldwide. By way of comparison, the equivalent figure for 2022 was 270, further details of which can be found in a press release issued by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation, which is behind the Swissnex initiative.

Just under 100 of the most promising Swiss start-ups benefited from the internationalization camps offered by Innosuisse, the Swiss Innovation Agency, at various Swissnex locations. Start-up internationalization activities were intensified in Boston and New York. The same also goes for the Climate Collider program, via which Swissnex in Boston and New York promotes the internationalization of Swiss start-ups in partnership with Innosuisse.

With the opening of the new main location in the Japanese city of Osaka, Swissnex achieved a major milestone, the press release explains. Other successes for Swissnex included the new Indo-Swiss Innovation Platform, the sustainable Metropolis program from Swissnex in San Francisco, and the InCube Challenge, which helps to connect young Swiss talents with the Chinese subsidiaries of global corporations. ce/mm
