Collaboration in research and services

Applied research and development at the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) is oriented towards answering questions that arise from practice. The focus is on the development and transfer of research results relevant to practical applications. We realise our projects in partnership with institutions from industry, business, culture and society.

With our range of services, we support companies and institutions in developing tailor-made answers to a wide array of questions in their practice and day-to-day work.

Knowledge and technology transfer is what links teaching, research and services, the aim being to put new and existing knowledge into practice in the form of concepts, methods, products and systems. The FHNW's knowledge and technology transfer departments provide businesses and institutions with fast, straightforward access to the expertise of our nine Schools.

The FHNW Research Support informs about programms and funding opportunities in the international and European (EU) context. We provide general guidance and also support the application and project implementation process. 

We provide information on

  •     Student projects, bachelor’s and master’s degree theses
  •     Projects in the field of applied research and development
  •     Utilisation of public support programmes (Innosuisse, National fund, EU-programmes, Foundations)
  •     Services
  •     Advisory services

Please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Select one subject area even if more than one is involved. The knowledge and technology transfer departments are in touch with each other and will deal with your enquiry.
