There are approximately 7,500 grant-making foundations in Switzerland, with an annual volume of distribution amounting to about one billion Swiss francs. The ZHAW works effectively with foundations on practice-oriented projects.
A large number of foundations, both in Switzerland and abroad, offer financial support for a wide variety of R&D projects. The subject of the project is determined by the goals of the foundation, which are usually determined in turn by practical problems. With its application-oriented research, the ZHAW can thus make a contribution to solving such practical problems.
Manuel Bamert, at our Research & Development unit, supports these projects as required, from conception to completion, and is in contact with various foundation platforms and directories.
