«I am only interested in the future, because that is the time I will live in.»

Albert Schweitzer

Currently, 13 institutes from all over Switzerland are members of brenet (universities of applied sciences, members of the ETH Domain and private organisations)

Competences

The cooperation of the brenet member institutes opens up a wide range of competences to our research and development partners. With the competence matrix (in german) you will find the optimal combination of knowledge of the individual institutes for your project. The administrative office will be happy to coordinate your request with the various competencies of the members.
