If you are a UK pharma, digital healthcare, biotech, or agri-tech business, building direct engagement with the lucrative ecosystems in Switzerland / the Vaud region will enable your ambitions to grow globally.

This May / June meet 1-2-1 in Cambridge, Manchester, and London with a series of key Swiss stakeholders from Lausanne Switzerland, via Innovaud, the regional economic development board for the canton of Vaud, to really leverage your international growth.

Here is a list of Switzerland / the Vaud region’s capabilities and connections:

  • Grants, accelerators, funding & investors – From bi-lateral R&D grants, the unique Swiss Offset programme, access to the Horizon Programme, and the Mass Challenge to venture capital and major corporate investment channels. Plus – the Haleon Accelerator programme in oral health, behavioural health, women’s health and emerging microbiome science.
  • UK/ Swiss collaborative research & development – Innovate UK, part of UK Research and Innovation, and Inno Suisse, The Swiss Innovation Authority, will invest up to £4 million from Innovate UK and a minimum of 3 million CHF from Inno Suisse in innovation projects.
  • Access the unique ‘Over the Counter’ Swiss ecosystem – Health, Food and Nutrition Valley from innovative life sciences start-ups to scale-ups and major food & agritech corporates like Nestle.
  • Engage with World-leading R&D access & thought leadership – EPFLBiopôleThe Swiss Cancer Centre LémanCHUV and the Y-PARC.
  • Authenticate clinical trials & pathways – Access the greatest life sciences talent pool in Europe, which has recently been enhanced with the recognition of US FDA approved med-tech devices and a mutual recognition agreement between US and Switzerland for GMP of medicinal products.
  • New free trade agreement: Recent trade negotiations for an enhanced Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between the Swiss and UK governments that will remove the remaining market access barriers, improve regulatory cooperation, and enable UK firms to invest in Switzerland, now and in the future.
  • Global partnerships: The region has a multitude of Global HQs and large international corporations who are constantly on the lookout for innovative technology and data focused applications that they can then partner, invest in, and connect them to their international networks.
