The research projects of our Institute are financed through public or private funds. They are aimed at gathering scientific findings and practical recommendations, mainly for entrepreneurs and SMEs.
Several Key Projects in Progress:
Amarok Observatory, Swiss Observatory overseeing the health of entrepreneurs, SME heads, and independents
This observatory aims at studying and documenting the working conditions of this special category of workers, that is, entrepreneurs, SME heads, and independents. A further objective is prevention: through our actions, we would like to help heads better live their activity. www.observatoire-amarok.ch
The GEM Project (Global Entrepreneurship Monitor) - http://www.gemconsortium.org/
The GEM Project explores entrepreneurial activity in Switzerland. It is an international research project launched jointly in the 90s by the London Business School in England and Babson College in the United States. The global GEM report compares results obtained in 54 countries, while the Swiss report focusses on results in our country, and compares them with those of similar countries. Our Institute is responsible for carrying out the study for Switzerland each year and for drawing up the report.
SIES Swiss International Entrepreneurship Survey - http://entrepreneurshipinstitute.ch/research
