HES-SO Calls programmes

Multi-year HES-SO incentive programmes – or “calls” – offer researchers the opportunity to join together in consortia to take on large-scale projects and build new platforms of knowledge.

SmartCity

SmartCity is a call for projects in institutes and universities to stimulate the development of new platforms of knowledge around the topic of “SmartCity”. Five projects were selected and granted a total of 3.6 million francs in funding.

SmartCity is a modern, innovative city that can improve the quality of life of its inhabitants, and that enables its companies to create wealth while adhering to responsible and sustainable development principles. A total of 32 HES-SO faculty members, 50 assistants, 9 universities, and 15 research institutes are involved.


The five projects are:

  • Clean City
    The development of tools and methods for developers of urban projects
  • CO2MeOH
    Production of clean energy in an urban setting
  • eGov-Suisse - eGovernment Innovation Center
    Creation of a centre of excellence and national research in cyber-administration based on the « intelligent city » concept
  • ATEQUAS
