Eligible for the Alpine country, Switzerland offers a mountain of opportunities for Irish businesses. Although small, a little over half the size of Ireland, Switzerland is a very business-oriented, having the second largest gross domestic product (GDP) per capita in the world.

Its manufacturing sector includes many names with an Irish presence.

They include the technologies of ABB, a world leader in the field of energy, robotics and automation technologies and the company Liebherr, one of the largest manufacturers of construction equipment, promoting technological progress.

Development and implementation of applications supported by digital infrastructure, data management, education and human resources, subsidies and other factors. This requires an integrated and reliable supply chain, creating opportunities, particularly for companies engaged in the development of smart manufacturing and industrial Internet of things (IIoT) solutions.

Ralph Gunthner, senior partner of the Swiss consulting group-plant, said: “most technology companies in Switzerland know about the IIoT and the cost of digitalization can create for them.

“Development of a new thinking and an integrated approach that combines technology, organizational change and behavior, as well as the formation of strong ecosystems will contribute to the realization of values.”

Industry Ireland iot is one of the fastest growing in the world, with the responsibility largely focused on the industrial space, and provision of software, platforms, sensors, integrated circuits, antennas, and more.

It covers a range of sectors, including manufacturing, transport, logistics and engineering.

Enterprise Ireland held a trade mission in Zurich in June to help Irish companies to explore the possibilities IIoT in Switzerland. Within two days, 10 Irish companies working with industry associations, visited the Swiss world-class manufacturers of, and participation in targeted seminars.

Swiss multinational Schindler was one company called for Irish participants. He is well known for its elevators, escalators and moving walkways, at the same time to transport people and materials, and connecting vertical and horizontal transport systems based on intelligent mobility solution. Futuristic technology Schindler’s port showcases a laboratory of ideas for innovative new control systems for the transit and the concept of urban life.

Based in Zurich, University and Eth is renowned for cutting-edge research in the field of microelectronics and robotics, and is one of the world’s top 10 institutions. Enterprise Ireland collaboration with the Eth to hold a seminar, which brought together Irish company and a Swiss industry experts.

Compelling questions: How to make cars optimally collect and share data with other machines? How they can work with greater autonomy?

Which applications are more likely to affect the development of IIoT and machine-to-machine (M2M)? As opportunities for suppliers of everything from antennas and chips, sensors and software to be captured?

Office enterprise Ireland düsseldorf aimed at helping Oth companies to identify and exploit opportunities arising from the digitization of the Swiss industry and in the broader German language region.

We are expanding it to actively promote Ireland as a supplier of technology for circuit IIoT value.

Technology business consultant Brigid O’donovan facilitates interaction between world-class Swiss and Irish technology organizations, and believes that there is huge potential: “both countries have good opportunities to take advantage of the performance and potential of digital technologies”.

To further expand these opportunities, enterprise Ireland will host a number of targeted activities, including, in October, cross-sectoral trade mission in the area of Zurich called ‘digitization’.

There is a significant opportunity for Irish companies to be part of an extended chain of Swiss value. This summit should achieve.
