Science in Switzerland

Switzerland is recognised as an international research centre. Both the Swiss state and the private sector are strongly involved in promoting science and technology.

Swiss scientists are involved in ground-breaking research, in part with foreign colleagues, in sciences ranging from nanotechnology to space research.

This scientific success has a long history. Many Swiss and Swiss-based scientists have won Nobel prizes.
