Start-ups valley Charting new brain territories

The Lake Geneva region, and the Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) in particular, is fertile territory for medical technology research and the creation of start-ups.

Expectations are high about the impact of the Human Brain Project, an ambitious €1 billion (CHF1.2 billion) programme funded by the European Union exploring new ways of mapping the human brain and led by a team at the EPFL. Observers say western Switzerland’s so-called ‘Health Valley’ stretching from canton Valais via Lausanne to Geneva should benefit enormously from this future initiative. (RTS-swissinfo.ch)
