About the Health Innovation Hub


As one of the world’s leading university hospitals and a center of excellence for medical research, the USZ is shaping the medicine of tomorrow with its knowledge and innovation. With the USZ Strategy 2025, the promotion of innovation was anchored as a central cornerstone for the future success of the USZ and thus Switzerland as a medical location.

The Health Innovation Hub supports innovators who want to develop innovative products and services in cooperation with the USZ. Both commercially viable ideas (start-up potential) and projects that lead to open access offers. All supported projects must go beyond pure research and should increase the chances of recovery and the quality of life of patients.
