INTERDISCIPLINARY AND INNOVATIVE
Eastern Switzerland's research institutions in the fields of health, MEM industries and digitalization work together in an interdisciplinary manner. Building on this, we are able to provide our partners with comprehensive support - from invention to innovation to the development of business models.
HEALTH AND PERFORMANCE
The topic area of health is well anchored in companies and research in Eastern Switzerland. And the Cantonal Hospital of St.Gallen, the Medical Master at the HSG in collaboration with the University of Zurich, and Empa's health focus have potential for expansion. Start-ups are emerging alongside established businesses. The Innovation Park offers companies and researchers test infrastructures that are constantly being expanded.
From Eastern Switzerland to the world market: Many companies based here operate globally and are highly internationalized. With this ideal starting position, they exploit their potential: in photonics, microtechnology, sensor technology or in precision manufacturing. The Switzerland Innovation Park Ost supports these companies in maintaining and developing their global competitiveness.
DIGITIZATION IN BUSINESS
Whether in health care, in business or in the MEM industry: digitization determines the competitiveness of a region. Because it makes many innovations and new business models possible in the first place. In St.Gallen, the topic is being strengthened by the "IT-rocks" initiative and by the School for Computer Science at the University of St.Gallen. Competences in digital innovation or leadership flow directly into entrepreneurial practice via the Innovation Park.
