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

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.
