SWISS SMART CITIES
Using a co-creation approach bringing together innovators, enterprises, public administrations, academia and citizens, this Innovation Booster will foster open and radical innovations that generate public value for smart cities and regions across Switzerland. As pilot projects are successfully scaled-up from great ideas and implemented in different contexts, the Innovation Booster will accelerate the speed of transformation from existing, isolated minimum smart cities into a network of learning smart cities.
During the 1st year, we will primarily focus on Smart Mobility, Smart Living and Smart People. We invite all innovation teams to submit their ideas via the corresponding challenges. Want to know more about our challenges, idea submission & check out the ideas submitted so far? Continue here.
What's in it for you?
In order to enable and accelerate innovation, we will strive to match your project idea with appropriate experts and partners. Thanks to the Innovation Booster program, we are able to support your projects financially with up to CHF 22'000*, including vouchers for expert coaching (17'000 after Gate 1, an additional 5'000 after Gate 2).

We also regularly organize events and workshops to encourage idea generation and networking among the smart city community. Our latest event was the Make-a-thon (stay tuned for upcoming events). We would love to welcome you!
