swissSIER is a non-for-profit organization to enable the professional development of researchers in the areas of technology and innovation management, strategic management, and entrepreneurship. We are a peer-to-peer community of doctoral and junior faculty researchers who are performing their doctoral studies at or with Swiss universities.

What we do

The network offers an organized platform to collaborate on or constructively discuss research. A mentoring element is provided by our senior members who are approaching the completion of their work and pass along helpful advice to those who are new to their studies. In addition, swissSIER also provides opportunities for members to co-develop data sources for complimentary research projects.
