Education / research / innovation

Thanks to its internationally competitive universities and research institutes, an active innovation system and a strong vocational training system, Switzerland is ideally positioned in the areas of education, research and innovation. There is always room to develop these areas further, however. This means continually addressing new challenges for institutions and their governance, positioning offerings as effectively as possible, and optimally coordinating the roles and tasks of the federal and cantonal governments and other stakeholders. econcept supports the responsible institutions and government and cantonal authorities in the development of education, research and innovation by laying the groundwork for sound strategic decision-making and advising institutions in relation to their strategic processes.

We provide support to Swiss universities and their national committees in the form of analyses and foundations for decision-making so that they can improve their profile and positioning in the context of international standards of excellence, national roles and competition with each other.
