Engineering and Architecture Geneva

HEPIA, HES-SO, OPI and Databooster join their forces to support SMEs. On 1st March 2022, a presentation of the National Thematic Network (NTN) Innosuisse DataBooster will be organised at HEPIA.

The NTN Innovation Booster is an Innosuisse-founded initiative which brings together the most important players from science/research, society and industry. Its main mission is to develop innovation ideas carried out by interdisciplinary teams.

The NTN Innovation Booster is composed of 18 programs, out of them 6 will start in 2022. Each NTN Innovation Booster program targets a specific domain. One of these programs is NTN Databooster which supports innovation around data-based value creation. Databooster focuses on the design of data-based services for the industrial and service sectors. Its goal is to combine new methods and technologies in the field of data science with new business models and service concepts.

Nowadays, companies collect vast amounts of data to extract information/knowledge. This information is usefull to optimise their process, develop new services and/or products.

The main mission of the NTN Databooster is to support SMEs to:

  • identify their business/technology challenges in a competitive innovation environment,
  • shape their innovation idea and get the opportunity to build their first prototype,
  • have access to funding instruments for their research and development programmes.
