The platform ingenious switzerland was launched within the scope of the federal government’s economic stabilisation programme Stabilo III to promote the exportation of Swiss architectural, engineering and design expertise. The stabilisation programme came to an end in 2013 and the platform was dissolved due to lack of economic viability. The SIA agreed to take over some of ingenious switzerland’s export activities and integrate them into its own new “International” division.


The interdisciplinary projects initiated by Swiss engineers, architects and designers under the umbrella of ingenious switzerland to open up new target markets were pursued until the end of 2015 with the funds provided by the Stabilo III package. Since then, the SIA no longer has the financial resources to carry out similar market development projects.
