"We are looking for projects in the "valley of death""

Aug 2, 2022 | Hubert Keiber, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Werner Siemens Foundation, describes why the Board decided to award a 15 million Swiss francs grant to a team of Empa researchers.


Whether it be a bilateral collaboration on a specific research project, as partner in a multi-institutional network or consortium, through our high-end technical and analytical services, a research mandate or in a strategic partnership – there are numerous different ways and possibilities to cooperate with Empa.

All of them, however, have the same goal: to transform the latest findings from research into marketable innovations – in close cooperation with our partners from industry.

Feel free to get in touch with us and we will find a cooperation modell that «fits the bill».
