Diversity & Synergies

More than 150 companies employing some 1,200 employees have already been convinced by Y-PARC—Swiss Technopole.

From start-ups through SMEs to multinationals, all have found an environment and solutions for their needs. Their common point: applied research and development and/or industrial production with high added value.

The diversity of their skills and activities — especially in information and communication technology, precision engineering, and medical technologies — offers a rich potential for synergies and innovation.

At the heart of this ecosystem of companies operate different organizations able to promote and support their business and technology development, especially R&D institutes and the Center for technology transfer of HEIG-VD and business support organizations partnering with Y-PARC.

We have found ​​excellent subcontractors in the region who are able to meet our very specific needs in the precision industry.
