Innovating Behaviour of Swiss Industry — Findings and Policy Conclusions

  • Beat Hotz-Hart
Conference paper

Abstract

Swiss industry is facing serious challenge. Like all highly industrialized nations, Switzerland must, in the long run, move away from the development of hardware and focus intensively on software. More specifically, there is a need to produce more complex, less standardized products with a higher share of services and know-how, depending less on raw material, environmental goods and capital.
