Cooperation with Companies

Research and development in the field of new technologies is relevant for knowledge transfer and the integration of the latest knowledge into corporate contexts. We are always open to interdisciplinary cooperation within the context of application-oriented research and development (R&D) in our research areas. We are interested in insights and research impulses from business as well as in mutual exchange. For your company, the knowledge generated from our research contributes to an innovation culture.

Examples of cooperations are:

  • Project partnership (e.g. Innosuisse): We partner up with industry-leading companies to deliver high quality, impact-oriented research and development projects from 250.000 CHF funding budget.
  • Commissioned research: Our partners can delegate small research projects (typically from 15.000 CHF) towards particular cross-industrial challenges in Social Robots, Augmented and Virtual Reality and Value-Sensitive Design.
  • Bachelor thesis: Students, as junior consultants, can tackle your challenges with expert supervision
  • Master thesis: Students deliver high quality research projects including experimentation and prototyping with expert supervision
  • Research paper: Students work on result-oriented research, market analysis, and survey experiments for your company
