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 NTN Innovation Booster – Plastics for Zero Emission relies on the strengths of the Swiss plastics industry. Together with the research community, disruptive ideas are sought and promoted to avoid CO2 emissions and develop negative emission technologies.

By cooperation of all partners in the value chain, economic potentials are released and jobs are created in Switzerland.

NTN INNOVATION BOOSTERS POWERED BY INNOSUISSE

More details about the NTN 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.
