The vision of the SSF is to become Switzerland's leading and internationally recognised centre of excellence in applied research and the transfer of Industry 4.0 and to create an ecosystem of partners in which unique innovations and activities related to Industry 4.0 are created. In order to achieve this goal, a solid basic financing and coverage of additional costs is necessary. These include in particular the costs of expanding the infrastructure to the latest state of the art, as well as the employment of highly qualified personnel to further professionalize the SSF and the expansion of the product range. 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.
