“Research promotion in Switzerland is not exclusively a task of our government. On the contrary, two thirds of the means allotted to research and development originate from business. Private foundations also play a very important role in this respect. Wellknown Prize awards – such as the Cloëtta Prize – accentuate the importance of foundations for the scientific world”.
