Promoting spin-off activities of female academics

A collaborative project by Swiss Universities (2022-2024)

Female academics and students are rarely involved in the commercialization of knowledge from research & development (R&D) at Swiss universities.

Their share in spin-off creation is only very small, which means that considerable potential is lost to Switzerland as a prominent country of innovation.

Promoting spin-off activities of female academics is part of P-7 Diversität, Inklusion und Chancengerechtigkeit in der Hochschulentwicklung (2021–2024) by swissuniversities.
