Swiss food net

Swiss Food Research, the association for the promotion of research and innovation in the food and food related sectors, is a network of Swiss academic institutions, which was established in order to enhance the competitiveness of the Swiss food industry and its suppliers. Besides flexible and non-bureaucratic, Swiss Food Research is in continuous contact with companies, in order to support the realization of innovative R&D projects (products, processes, services) which derive from market requirements. He supports companies in the formulation of project proposals and imparts the highest competencies of research institutes within our network for the most successful execution of the project. He also assist companies in the realization of financial support from national as well as European funding sources. As soon as the project consortium is established, the economic partner takes over the lead of the project. However, he continues to coach the project in order to ensure a successful realization of the innovation. Reliability, professionalism and efficiency represent the basis of their cooperation with their partners.
