The Swiss Smart Factory(SSF) of the Switzerland InnovationPark Biel/BienneAG (SIPBB) is the first open test and demonstration platform on the topic of Industry 4.0 in Switzerland. The SSF was opened on 23 May 2017 and has since received a great deal of interest from industry, research and society. In the first year of its existence, the SSF a basic development, test and demonstration infrastructure on the topic of Industry 4.0 was established at the Ipsach site.

The vision of SSF is to become Switzerland's leading and internationally recognised centre of excellence in application-oriented research and in the transfer of Industrie 4.0 and to create an ecosystem of partners in which unique innovations and activities around the topic of Industrie 4.0 are created. In order to meet this goal, solid basic funding and coverage of additional costs incurred is necessary. These include, in particular, the costs of upgrading the infrastructure to the latest state of the art, as well as hiring highly qualified personnel to further professionalise SSF and expand the range of services. As part of this expansion, we will introduce a membership model that guarantees members unique services and contributes to the sustainability of this unique platform in Switzerland.
