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 form part of international networks and are carried out in close collaboration with partners.

For instance, FHNW researchers work closely with businesses and partners in industry, etc. as well as with other universities and institutions, both in Europe and beyond. Many of these collaborative ventures are carried out as part of European framework programmes for research and in some cases they are managed by FHNW researchers. By undertaking international research activities in this way, FHNW contributes to strengthening the regional economy, the educational sector and society in general. Insights gained are fed back into initial training and continuing education at FHNW.

The relevant publications on the research projects are available through the IRF (Institutional Repository FHNW). You can search the IRF based on specific key words, topics or individuals. In addition to publications, the IRF also contains presentations, specialist contributions, student projects and images as well as audio and video material.

Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 is the EU’s largest framework programme for research and innovation to date. As a funding programme, it aims to build a community and a competitive economy across the EU that is underpinned by knowledge and innovation while also contributing to sustainable development. In order to have a targeted impact on society, the programme focuses on some specific areas and has devised a comprehensive catalogue of measures.

The FHNW University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland is involved in various Horizon 2020 projects – find out which ones in the overview below.
