Let your ideas continue to brood in the creative team. We offer you three fascinating possibilities:

Innovation Lab

At Empa's NEST in Dübendorf, a major project is being developed to market maturity in cooperation with the right engineers, developers, creative minds, office planners, programmers, etc.

Today, there is often a large gap between technologies that work in the laboratory and the market that demands reliable, mature products. NEST accelerates the innovation process by providing a platform for testing, improving and demonstrating what's new under real-life conditions.

The NEST was specially designed for a short development time with sequential test phases and a fast «time to market». It is unique for Switzerland in this way.

Co-creation Workshops

At your company or at the Ideation Room of ETH Zurich's Technopark in Zurich, we launch the first step towards the maturing of new products, services or business models.

As a methodology, we follow the design thinking process with rapid prototyping and intensive customer involvement.

A larger team and project quickly becomes concrete by using the methodology of the «6 Thinking Hats » to crystallize the core of the problem. Based on this, completely new approaches, ideas and multidisciplinary approaches to solutions are possible.

And even more inspiring: A co-creation workshop together with a company (e. g. Swisscom, LO) or other creative minds around the world.
