Research and development 


Canton Schwyz assumes an active role in the field of knowledge and technology transfer. The aim is to provide companies with access to technical and entrepreneurial know-how for the successful implementation of innovations. The development of advanced technologies and the realisation of new products and services are essential for the preservation and creation of jobs, and they ensure a competitive advantage for companies based in Canton Schwyz.  

Schwyz Technology Centre

Canton Schwyz maintains a Technology Centre of its own, the TZS, with the aim of supporting sustainable company development.

The TZS offers consultancy services and coaching for newly formed companies and also provides established enterprises with support and advice in the areas of corporate analysis and company management, as well as innovation and diversification. It plays an active part in fostering innovative projects and business networks.

The TZS offers attractive office space at competitive rates. In order to ease budgetary pressures on corporate start-ups, rents are particularly low in the first three years. Companies based on the premises also benefit from one-to-one support provided by an experienced local executive.

Another important task of the TZS is running the Health Tech Cluster Switzerland. As its sponsoring agency, the TZS acts as a focal point for the HTCS and oversees its management.
