The canton of Jura has established a specialised agency – Creapole SA – entrusted with supporting businesses concerned with innovation and technology transfer. This agency has joined a new structure in French-speaking Switzerland for the promotion of innovation, Platinn (ex-CCSO). Thanks to synergies with the technology transfer body Alliance, SMEs and start-ups in the region can now benefit from a complete package of services relating to innovation. This concrete approach contributes to improving the competitiveness of the economic actors by offering high quality and recognised professional support. Accordingly Creapole has access to diversified and complementary skills that allow it to provide solutions to meet the needs of businesses engaged in innovation.
In addition, Creapole is also the Jura branch of i-net Basel Nano, an initiative of the canton of Basel-City for the promotion of nanotechnologies, a support programme to which businesses established in the canton of Jura also have access.
