A SCIENCE-BASED R&D SYSTEM
Research and development (R&D) activities, which reach exceptional proportions in the canton of Vaud, are the basis for all innovation.
The innovative strength of the canton of Vaud is based on an exceptional research and development capacity, following a period of accelerated growth. Certainly, R&D and innovation are two distinct concepts. There are many examples of innovations that do not require R&D and transform, for example, a business model, even if the use of digital technologies is often key.
