Our Focus Areas

Prof. Dr. Thomas Friedli  | Moritz Häussler | Ronja Trappmann

In 2017 we launched our annual survey for the first time to analyze the prevailing situation of the Swiss manufacturing sector. Since then, each edition has added more insights into structural changes in the manufacturing landscape. Moreover, each version has shown challenges and opportunities for manufacturing in Switzerland as well as how they develop in the long run. In 2019 we additionally launched the Swiss Manufacturing Award to honor one company, which has outstandingly contributed to manufacturing in Switzerland, every year.
