University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW)

  • Description
  • The Uni­ver­sity of Applied Sci­ences and Arts North­west­ern Switzer­land (FHNW) is a state-​accredited uni­ver­sity of applied sci­ences: this unique con­cept in Swiss ter­tiary edu­ca­tion is designed to meet pro­fes­sional needs in edu­ca­tion, research and consulting.

    Sit­u­ated amidst lead­ing inter­na­tional clus­ters the FHNW’s nine schools main­tain close links with soci­ety, cul­ture and indus­try: its high qual­ity grad­u­ate, post­grad­u­ate and con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion focuses on applied knowl­edge. Research and con­sult­ing activ­ity is prac­tice oriented.

    We teach over 8’000 degree stu­dents and nearly 40’000 par­tic­i­pants in con­tin­u­ing edu­ca­tion. We con­duct over 550 research or con­sult­ing projects. We have 200 mobil­ity partners.

    Research and Development

    Research is fun­da­men­tal for higher edu­ca­tion insti­tu­tions: application-​oriented research and devel­op­ment occu­pies a cen­tral posi­tion at the FHNW. We con­duct research with busi­ness and indus­trial part­ners in Switzer­land and abroad.

    FHNW, the Uni­ver­sity of Basel, the Paul Scher­rer Insti­tute and the Friedrich Miescher Insti­tute col­lab­o­rated to launch the «Inte­gral Prod­uct Devel­op­ment» project. This project is to gen­er­ate ser­vices and con­sul­tan­cies in the realm of application-​oriented research and devel­op­ment and to posi­tion the FHNW as a knowl­edge trans­fer plat­form between schools of higher edu­ca­tion, busi­ness and society.

    Although most of the arti­cles are in ger­man, you can get an overview over the research activ­i­ties at the FHNW in the project data­base.
