Through its six technology parks, Innovaud can offer companies an ideal choice for setting up their site.

Innovaud collaborates with the 6 technology parks who are the founders of the Association. 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.

The Technology Parks

The Ateliers de Renens technopark is a hotbed of open innovation and design. It brings together entrepreneurship, education and research in a co-working hub. It is home to startups and successful SMEs alike and hosts the MassChallenge business incubator, MakerSpace, FabLab and a community lab.

Biopôle science park is a dynamic research community that brings together academic institutes and companies involved in the life sciences. Founded in 2004 by Vaud Canton, it offers top-flight facilities, common work spaces and high-value services, all designed to foster innovation and promote business development.

EPFL Innovation Park helps high-tech companies to succeed by providing a full array of services and expertise that promote innovation and entrepreneurship. Its mission is to help ensure that world-class research from EPFL and neighboring universities translates into outstanding startups and innovative projects.

The Sainte-Croix Technology Park, one of Innovaud’s founding partners, is the only center of excellence for micro welding and related techniques in Switzerland. It also has recognized expertise in the field of additive manufacturing and is equipped with the latest 3D digitizing and printing technologies.

The Orbe Technology Park – or TecOrbe – has close ties with many local universities and forms part of a dense innovation ecosystem. Located in an industrial district, the technopark helps startups launch production of their technology, supports innovation at SMEs and fosters groundbreaking ideas across the entire industry.

Y-PARC is Switzerland's leading technopark. It houses over 160 companies with some 1,300 employees and spans more than 50 hectares.
