Call for End-User Innovation Projects

The objective of this call is to initiate collaboration projects that ensure that novelty developed in an academic or research context achieves its full potential in production and end-user contexts.

We are looking to support collaborations aimed at, but not limited to:

  • The industrialization of research prototypes, developed for instance in academic contexts, in the form of data products or licensable software with clear market potential.
  • The adoption of data science solutions designed by academic/research organizations in public sector entities such as cantonal administrations or federal offices, benefiting their end-users.
  • The translation of machine learning models created in specific domains, such as R&D teams or clinical research, into robust applications benefiting specific end-users, such as practitioners and their patients.

Especially welcome are projects in, but not limited to, the following domains:

  • Energy and sustainability: sustainable manufacturing, energy forecasting and optimization, sustainable environments and mobility.
  • Health and biomedical: biomedical data science, precision medicine and collaborative frameworks for patient welfare.
  • Societal transformation: enablement of public administration for better serving Swiss-based population; public/social service and humanitarian-focused organizations.
