Global Research and Business Incubation Zurich is combined with the main hub of the Swiss field organization in Regensdorf, just a few minutes from Zurich and close to the heart of Switzerland's academic hub – the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH Zurich). The location was founded in April 2007 as a strategic investment in the collaboration with ETH Zurich, a long-standing partner of great expertise.
The primary goal of the location in Zurich is to conduct application-oriented research in joint projects with academic and research partners, which are drawn from all over Europe. While it generates quality outputs in many domains, the location is providing special expertise in the major areas of Human Computer Interaction, Internet of Things, and New Assets & Business Model Innovation. One highlight of the combined efforts, the Future Retail Center (FRC), employs RFID and different sensor and mobile technologies. The FRC shows a real-world supermarket where a multitude of scenarios concerning retail trade, logistics, and storage of goods can be tested in-vivo or presented live to customers to prove suitability for daily use.
Zurich is embedded in and strongly interwoven with the worldwide network of Global Research and Business Incubation. Furthermore, the close local collaboration of economy and science, qualified partner enterprises, and renowned research institutes pave the way for product innovations, which are of supreme relevance for trade and logistics. In Zurich, the research location benefits from its proximity to the dynamic knowledge of leading universities in Europe to generate greater value for customers and manufacturers.
