International Research

Research is always geared towards international developments. This is why research projects at FHNW are not just organised within the national context of Switzerland but also with international network partners and are carried out in close collaboration with the industry.

Researchers at the FHNW University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland are involved in international applied research and development projects. The benefit of international research funding to the researchers is twofold: some projects receive generous funding and are realised with special expertise. Moreover, researchers are able to build and expand important research networks. 

In addition to project funding for FHNW researchers, support can also be provided to partners in industry in the context of further European research funding (Horizon Europe, Interreg, AAL, ERA-NET, bilateral programmes, Eurostar, etc.). The FHNW’s Research Support team can provide information in this regard (Zm9yc2NodW5nc3N1cHBvcnRAZmhudy5jaA==). 

Just like nationally funded projects, international research projects make an important contribution to strengthening the regional economy, education and civil society: insights gained flow back into education and continuing education at the FHNW and into projects with partner institutions in the region’s industry, business, civil society and culture.
