The Canton of Vaud is the third strongest economy in Switzerland. Its success is based mainly on a knowledge economy : healthcare, finance, education, research and engineering.

Most of the businesses are SME s, highly specialised and very flexible. But the canton also hosts numerous international headquarters and branch offices of multinational c.ompanies.

For many years now, the Canton of Vaud has pursued an active policy of developing its main scientific and technical clusters, particularly in life sciences, micro-nanotechnologies, ICT and cleantech.

These centers bring together expertise, a specialist workforce and top-drawer infrastructure of European dimensions. The strong political backing from which they benefit provides the kind of effective framework that is particularly favourable for the development and exploitation of technical innovations.

In this context, the Economic Promotion of the Canton of Vaud aims to help the business community in any project to set up, develop or establish a company.
