PARK INNOVAARE celebrates its first anniversary

Just over a year ago, on May 11, 2015, 32 companies and public institutions founded innovAARE AG, the organizing institution and operating company of PARK INNOVAARE. The Innovation Park has been gaining momentum ever since. Now is a good time to review the interim results.

innovAARE AG gains new shareholders

innovAARE AG, as the organizing institution and operating company of PARK INNOVAARE, is mainly privately financed and will ensure the funding of PARK INNOVAARE. At the beginning of this year, in the context of an increase of capital, interested companies were invited to participate in innovAARE AG as shareholders. Three new companies joined innovAARE AG’s shareholders, thus improving its funding by CHF 300,000.

Already five resident high-tech companies

PARK INNOVAARE operates the deliveryLAB. The building serves as a basis for high-tech companies that want to benefit from the advantages of the comprehensive services offered here, in the midst of a flourishing innovative ecosystem. The deliveryLAB is already hosting for five high-tech companies and is the starting point for their business.
Advanced Accelerator Technologies AG (AAT) was founded in 2015 as a joint initiative of a number of industry partners. It aims to commercialize the Paul Scherrer Institute PSI’s leading know-how concerning accelerators, experimentation, and large-scale facilities.
Founded in December 2015, leadXpro AG specializes in the development and optimization of pharmaceutical active substances. The company’s main target is so-called membrane proteins. The use of Swiss Free Electron Laser (SwissFEL), currently under construction at the PSI, constitutes a particular potential for the company’s research.
nomoko AG is committed to the development of a high-resolution camera technology. It can be used to quickly scan big objects such as cities and to replicate them in a 3D model. The technology finds its application in architecture, in virtual reality and in robotics.
Excelsus Structural Solution (Swiss) AG offers access to state-of-the-art characterization tools for the structural and microstructural analysis of materials (pharmaceuticals, food and aroma compounds, polymers as well as various other chemicals). Customers are from various industries such as pharma, synthetic materials, building materials, cosmetics and the food industry.
