You would like to enjoy top-class facilities in order to develop a project outside of your walls? But you do not know where to go?

Innovaud helps you to find the best place to get settled, depending on your needs and your industry.  This step is crucial, because choosing an appropriate location increases the chances of success of your project.

In this context, the seven technology parks available in Vaud provide an ideal solution.  They inspire collaboration with nearby institutes, universities, and businesses, creating an atmosphere conducive to new ideas.

Technology parks

Technology parks are designed to encourage synergies between determined innovative companies within a given geographic area by pooling local infrastructure and technical skills.  They are thus an excellent springboard for innovative projects.

EPFL Innovation Park
EPFL Innovation Park is specialized in the establishment of high-tech companies.  In the immediate vicinity of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale Lausanne--EPFL) and the University of Lausanne (UNIL), it aims to foster the emergence and development of technology start-ups through its incubator, ‘The Garage.’

The Y-PARC in Yverdon-les-Bains is the largest technology park in Switzerland and the first to have emerged on the national scene.  It offers its occupants an advanced infrastructure as well as access to its incubator Y-START and to the Center for Technology Studies and Transfers (CETT) of the Vaud School of Business Management and Engineering.

Dedicated to life sciences, Biopôle lies just north of Lausanne, close to the University Hospital Center of Vaud (CHUV).  From the molecule to the incubator, from the emergence of small companies to major business, the continued growth and development of this biotechnology park invigorates the entire chain of value creation.

Located in the north of the Canton of Vaud, TecOrbe meets the needs of start-ups and SMEs in the fields of environmental applications, sustainable development, and renewable energy.  It offers an incubator dedicated to the creation and development of new businesses.

Technology Park of Sainte-Croix
On a site with stunning vistas and approximately 10,000 square meters, the Technology Park of Sainte-Croix is the ideal place to set up companies engaged in micro-welding and related industrial techniques

Ateliers of the City of Renens
Ateliers of the City of Renens aim to encourage the creation of new businesses in the fields of visual communications, graphic design, and architecture.  They are located near the Lausanne School of Art and Design (ECAL) and the EPFL + ECAL Lab, a unit of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in a partnership with ECAL that strives to stimulate innovation at the intersection between technology, design, and architecture.
