SME Program
On collaborative innovation

Microcity supports Neuchâtel SMEs to forge a vision, achieve their ambitions and accelerate their projects through a personalized, structured and collaborative innovation program.

We work in cooperation with competence partners and networks: Depending on your needs, we open the doors to world-class R&D institutions or provide you with privileged access to companies, specialists, coaches and funding organisations.

Our main activities are thus the fact finding, the matchmaking and the alignment to sustain collaborations. On request, we take on project management.
