The swissnex Network

The swissnex network plays a major role in implementing federal international cooperation policy in the field of education, research and innovation between Switzerland and a number of selected partner countries.


swissnex is the Swiss global network charged with forging ties in education, research and innovation (ERI). Located in around twenty of the most innovative countries, its mission is to promote the international outreach of Swiss ERI players, and support them actively in the international exchange of knowledge, ideas and talent. The five swissnex sites and their satellites together with around twenty Science Counselors in Swiss embassies, help to promote Switzerland’s position as a global innovation hub.

The core values of the swissnex network are:

  • to create networking opportunities for its partners with flourishing innovation ecosystems around the world.
  • to identify trends, analyze political developments in scientific policy and direct attention to existing opportunities in science, education and innovation.
  • to promote the visibility of Swiss higher education institutions, research centres, start-ups and other partner organisations focusing on innovation.
  • to inspire new ideas by fostering contacts and knowledge exchange.
