Explore how synergies in the field of Renewable Energy, Sustainability, Data, Lifesciences and Healthtech can help shape the future.

Focus areas

In keeping with our passion for driving change today, for tomorrow, we have selected core thematic areas that are the emerging topics for research and innovation in Switzerland and India. We are engaging Swiss and Indian players on upcoming topics within Renewable Energy, Sustainability, Data, Lifesciences and Healthtech, to enable co-creation of technologies and solutions that would shape the future.

Read on to know what we do in each domain.

Renewable Energy

India has ambitious plans for its renewable energy sector. It aims to increase its renewable energy capacity to 175 GW by 2022, and has set a year-to-year target to achieve this goal. By 2030, India plans to generate 40% of its total energy requirement through eco-friendly sources. Switzerland has expended tremendous effort through R&D and capital into devising new solutions in the adoption of green technologies. It has achieved great strides in this effort with its cities being the cleanest and the least polluted among the world. 

swissnex India sees great potential in bringing together Switzerland’s innovation and India’s ambition in clean energies. We offer a platform for Swiss and Indian energy experts to connect, exchange best practices, share knowledge, transfer technologies, collaborate to innovate, and co-create a green future.


Digital Technologies

The revenue of the Indian ICT (information and communication technology) sector is expected to reach about USD 225 billion by 2020 on account of increasing internet penetration. Leading Indian IT firms are diversifying their offerings and showcasing leading ideas in blockchain, artificial intelligence to clients using innovation hubs, research and development centers, in order to create differentiated offerings. Social, Mobility, Analytics and Cloud (SMAC) are collectively expected to offer greater opportunities. Cloud represents the largest opportunity under SMAC, increasing at a CAGR of approximately 30 percent by 2020.

India’s global strength in technology production and consumption makes it the right market for Switzerland to explore.
