Swiss Innovation Park
Empa is considered an innovation hub for Switzerland’s economy and industry. True to its motto “The Place where Innovation Starts“, Empa was instrumental in developing and realizing the concept for a national innovation park. The first public event concerning the innovation park in March 2008 was held at Empa in Dübendorf, for instance.
Over the next few years, the Innovation Park Zurich will be built in Dübendorf, Empa’s “home town”, as part of the nationwide network Swiss Innovation Park. The long-term project with international appeal offers prime framework conditions for collaborations between Swiss research institutions and the research and development departments at large companies, innovative SMEs and start-ups.
