Boosting Switzerland as a centre of biomedical research and technology
The federal government has adopted a master plan to boost this country’s strength in biomedical research and technology, long-term. As part of these efforts, in 2013 the Federal Council approved a master plan designed to boost Switzerland as a centre of biomedical research and technology.
At the end of 2018 the Federal Council did an interim appraisal of the master plan in the form of a review: Overall, five years after approval of the master plan, implementation of the 23 measures is well on track. The SCTO and its CTU Network play a significant role in the support of important research infrastructures and in securing young talent in clinical research.
