The SATW promotes the exchange of knowledge between researchers at universities and product developers in companies. With its Transferkolleg, the SATW supports promising innovative projects at a very early stage with a financial contribution, and gives developers the opportunity to discuss their projects constructively with technical colleges and to seek advise from experts on technology transfer in an atmosphere of understanding.
Grants for member organisations
Every year, the SATW allocates grants of some CHF 100,000 to help its member organisations implement engineering-related projects and events.
Germaine de Staël
The "Germaine de Staël" programme promotes collaboration between French and Swiss researchers and research teams by providing funding towards travel and accommodation expenses incurred by their team members as part of attending meetings or conferences. Funding of around CHF 4,500 per project per year is provided to Swiss participants.
