swissnex Brazil is an initiative of Switzerland’s State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI). A public-private partnership, our mission is to nurture an innovation ecosystem with ideas, concepts and contacts through cooperation and interaction with our Brazilian partners. We foster dialogue and enable collaboration among opinion leaders, researchers and practitioners in education, science and innovation between Brazil and Switzerland. Officially launched in April 2014, we are the youngest addition to a growing network of outposts in Bangalore, Boston, San Francisco, Shanghai and Singapore. In each location, we collaborate closely with public and private sector partners, sponsors and donors who are equally committed to exchanging knowledge in an effort to further and consolidate the cooperation between Switzerland and Brazil in the areas of education, research, and innovation.
