Diverse community events, exclusive to our innovative ecosystem, are also happening all year round inside the innovation park.  

Why the Jura?

The rich industrial heritage in the Jura, as its longstanding tradition in the metallurgy and watch industry, offers companies skilled labor and the perfect supply chain for companies in the medtech sector. Businesses requiring precision engineering and chemical manufacturing find in the Jura essential resources and efficient operations. 

The Canton of Jura also offers support in different company stages:  

Startup support: For innovative startups during the launch and pre-industrialization period.

We can connect you with the project managers from DayOne Tech and i4Challenges, who are also on-site.  

Furthermore, we are always looking forward to sharing milestones and news from our residents on our social media. For every resident, we do a welcoming post to our network that is shared on our LinkedIn channel.  

Why would I need a prototype space?

Our “Espace d’Innovation” at our site Jura is a dedicated space for our residents to make their ideas a reality. It was created together with DayOne Tech in 2023 and offers startups a workspace to adjust and develop their prototypes. It includes a pillar drill, two 3D printers and a wealth of electronic components and devices.

Making an MVP right at the office is convenient, especially with a space that allows you to do as many tests as possible. With a prototype, you can persuade at a pitch or impress partners and investors. It is a great first step when reaching out to the industry. Also, our space is very accessible (you only bring in the materials, the machinery and tools are free to use).

All of our residents at our site Jura and medtech startups from the DayOne Tech accelerator can access the innovation space. 

Can you help me apply to InnoSuisse or competitions?

Part of the requirements of applying to Innosuisse, Switzerlands innovation agency, is to partner with a research institution recognized by the Swiss Confederation. At the Switzerland Innovation Park Basel Area – Jura we can connect you with the people that will help you find the perfect academic and industry partners. 

How can we access other parks?

What is the benefit for me to work at the site Jura (in comparison to home office, for example)?
