On September 24, Switzerland Innovation Park Innovaare celebrated the topping out ceremony of its new building together with more than 300 guests from science, industry and politics. The new research and development building has a size of 38’000 m2 and consists of two 7-storey-buildings which are connected by a large, temperature-stable and vibrationfree cleanroom.
The innovation campus will be hosting research departments of large companies, SME and start-ups as well as two departments of the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI, i.e. the Photon Science Division and the department of Engineering and Coordination, which will occupy approximately 60% of the total space on the innovation campus. Switzerland Innovation Park Innovaare is already home to 17 high-tech companies and works closely with the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI.
