CSEM’s success story began in the early 1980s as a result of the visionary plans of the Swiss Confederation: Switzerland—the early 1980s. There is a real concern that the country is losing ground to its neighbors when it comes to new technologies. But the federal council has a visionary plan. It creates a private research and development center, and in 1984 the CSEM success story begins.
Mission & Vision
CSEM’s mission is to develop and transfer world-class (micro) technologies to the industrial sector—Switzerland being our priority—in order to reinforce the sector’s competitive advantage. We do this by:
CSEM is a research and technology organization (RTO) and a public–private partnership.
Building alliances and strategic partnerships is vital to coping with the fast pace of technological innovation and product development cycles. Members of our extensive network of academic, research, and industrial partners in Switzerland and aboard make vital contributions to our activities. Alliances and partnerships leverage broad research efforts and developments in applied technology.
Start-upsStart-ups or joint-ventures based on CSEM technologies contribute to the economic vitality of Switzerland and of established and emerging industries. Their creation is a way of valorizing CSEM’s research programs and those of its academic and research partners. It’s also part of CSEM’s mission, figuring in the service contract established between the center and the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI).
