There are approximately 13‘000 foundations in Switzerland, which distribute annually about 125 millions Swiss francs for education, research and innovation project. The ZHAW works effectively with foundations on practice-oriented research and development (R&D).
A large number of foundations, both in Switzerland and abroad, offer financial support for a wide variety of R&D projects. The themes supported by a foundation is determined by its goals; usually foundations address practical problems. With its application-oriented research, the ZHAW can thus make a contribution to solving such practical problems.
