TOGETHER WE CREATE
NEW PERSPECTIVES –
MADE IN SWITZERLAND

The global challenge of climate change requires collective action. Switzerland therefore wants to bring its CO2 emissions to net zero by 2050 at the latest.

As part of the solution, the Innovation Booster Plastics for Zero Emission relies on the strengths of the Swiss plastics and composites industry. Together with the research community, disruptive ideas are sought and promoted to avoid CO2 emissions and waste, to save energy and resources as well as to develop fossil free and even negative emission materials.

By cooperation of all partners in the value chain, economic potentials shall be released and jobs created in Switzerland.
Join us and be a part of the solution!

INNOVATION BOOSTERS POWERED BY INNOSUISSE

More details about the Innovation Booster Programme can be found  here.

Our Vision for the funded period (2022-2025) is to have a significant impact on reaching “net zero CO2” in Switzerland by follow-up projects. These can either be R&D projects, funded by one of the industrial partner, or larger innovation projects funded by Innosuisse, regional funding agencies, European programs, etc.

Innosuisse: Revised Federal Law on the Promotion of Research and Innovation

From 2023, companies and other implementation partners will contribute 40 to 60 percent of the total direct project costs to innovation projects. Up to now, the rule has been half participation. In international innovation project funding, Swiss implementation partners, for example SMEs, can receive direct funding from Innosuisse. This puts them on an equal footing with their foreign project partners. Innosuisse can also now fund innovation projects by start-ups in preparation for their first...
