Supporting innovation is one of UZH’s strategic goals. Through the Innovation Hub, the UZH Entrepreneur Fellowships provide junior researchers who are looking to use their research findings from UZH to set up a business with financing, coaching, training and access to infrastructure.

The innovation program of the Digitalization Initiative of the Zurich Higher Education Institutions (DIZH) promotes various types of innovative digitalization projects run by Zurich universities, with both the private and public sector. The aim is to bring research findings closer in line with practical real-world applications. At the same time, the needs and experiences of application partners will feed back into the research process. Specific funding instruments are also provided at UZH by the Digital Society Initiative (DSI).
