CSEM is a private nonprofit Swiss organization for research and innovation. Supported by the Swiss Confederation, our mission is to enhance the competitiveness of industry by developing new technology platforms and transferring it to the industrial sector.
Our operation is based on five strategic programs:
Microsystems (Design & process Integration & packaging)
Systems (Scientific instrumentation, Medical device technology, Automation)
Photovoltaics & Energy Management (Crystalline Silicon & metallization , Modules & System integration, Thin film coating & devices, Printable photovoltaics, Energy Management)
Ultra-Low-Power Integrated Systems (System-on-chips, Wireless, Vision)
Surface Engineering (Nanotechnology, biotechnology, printable electronics)
In each of the above, we have gained a reputable standing on the national and international levels by offering our customers and industry partners custom-made, innovative solutions supported by our extensive market knowledge and technology expertise. CSEM plays a key role in the innovation value chain, by relying on public–private partnerships and narrowing the gap between fundamental research and industrialization. The support we get from the Swiss Confederation provides CSEM with greater flexibility in addressing a broad spectrum of technology research areas, which strengthens our commitment to innovation and sustainability and puts us in a better position to address future social and environmental challenges. By expanding CSEM’s knowledge and adapting it to industrial needs, new products are brought to market and new ventures are created. CSEM works with a wide range of stakeholders, from startups to SMEs and large organizations. Our services include contract R&D, strategy and innovation consultancy, development of specific business solutions for several Industrial Sectors (Space & Scientific Instrumentation, Watchmaking, Health & Lifestyle, Communication & Semiconductor, Energy & Environment, Automation & Control, Aeronautics, Transport & Security).

Holst Centre is an independent R&D center that develops technologies for wireless autonomous sensor technologies and flexible electronics, in an open innovation setting and in dedicated research trajectories. A key feature of Holst Centre is its partnership model with industry and academia based around roadmaps and programs. It is this kind of cross-fertilization that enables Holst Centre to tune its scientific strategy to industrial needs.
Light plays a fundamental role in our lives. It provides illumination and stimulation; it can affect our emotions and bring safety to the darkness. Light even regulates basic biological processes deep within our bodies. Flexible, lightweight and shining over large areas in almost any shape, organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) will let us do more with light than ever before – opening up new designs and ways to treat illness. And with lighting currently using around 20% of the world’s electricity, OLEDs’ potential for high efficiency could save huge amounts of energy and greenhouse gas emissions.
