Swiss Innovation agency Innosuisse is launching two new funding initiatives this month namely the impulse programme “Swiss Innovation Power” and the Flagship Initiative.
In November 2020, the Federal Council decided to launch the impulse programme “Swiss Innovation Power” through Innosuisse starting in 2021. The aim of the programme is to stimulate innovation activities during the current pandemic and ensure the long-term competitiveness of SMEs and other commercial organisations with a maximum of 500 full-time employees. The online Innosuisse application platform has been open to applications since 7 January 2021.
With the Flagship Initiative, Innosuisse aims to promote projects that enable innovation in thematic areas that are of great relevance to the Swiss economy and society and will receive proposals until 31 March 2021.
