Development award

Wüest Partner Development Award

Wüest Partner Research Funding

The Wüest Partner Development Prize was awarded annually from 2011 to 2020. After the 10th award, the sponsorship prize is now being replaced by a so-called “Research Funding”. We will now provide an annual budget for the targeted funding of projects between science and practice.

For the years 2020 and 2021, Wüest Partner has launched a research project together with Prof. Philipp Thalmann as part of the “EPFL Innovators Program”, which we are co-financing with over CHF 60,000. We are also supporting the project with our experts and our extensive data pool.
