We’re there for you

06.04.2020 Switzerland is in a state of emergency due to the coronavirus pandemic. This is also affecting our day-to-day research. The protection of our staff is our top priority. However, we are also aware that innovative ideas are called for – today more so than ever – and that we can make an important contribution to supporting the economic situation in Switzerland. That is why we are doing everything in our power to keep our institutes running. We are continuing to work on current projects and are also available for new ideas

We are protecting ourselves

The health of our staff and business partners is our top priority. We are acting responsibly and consistently implementing the official guidelines.

Our work continues

In spite of all the restrictions, we are still able to work and are keeping things running. Our staff are working from home wherever possible. Communication is possible thanks to digital tools.

When working in our labs or in the technology park, the official requirements are more difficult to implement. As a result, restrictions may have to be put in place.

Thank you very much for your understanding that due to the extraordinary circumstances, and despite our best efforts, there may nevertheless be delays in ongoing projects. If this is the case, the project manager will be in touch with you.

Contacting us

Our staff can be reached digitally via telephone, e-mail, Microsoft Teams and Skype. If you are unable to reach a certain contact person, call our secretariat on +41 32 344 03 41.

Got a new idea for a project?

We look forward to a first virtual conversation.
