Innovations are a key driver of the Swiss economy. They ensure our prosperity. The presentation of the Swiss Technology Award supports and promotes this culture of innovation. Each year, outstanding technology-based innovations and developments from start-ups, universities and technical institutions as well as established businesses are awarded prizes in three categories: Inventors, Start-ups (Rising Start) and Innovation Leaders
This prize is the most important distinction for innovation and technology transfer in Switzerland. The Swiss Technology Award was taken over from the Swiss Economic Forum AG in 2008 and is presented at the Swiss Innovation Forum.
