Our R&D in Switzerland at a Glance

Our Swiss subsidiary was founded in 1949 by the Swiss Red Cross in Bern. Today, we operate as one integrated global research and development organization that assembles coordinated global project teams, drawing together staff from different countries depending on their expertise. To contribute to our global strategic goals, we are strengthening our local R&D network, fully leveraging the opportunities that Switzerland offers as a biotech hotspot while at the same time, allowing for flexible and activity-based ways of working.
