The Swiss Alliance for Data-Intensive Services, an innovation alliance of universities and companies across all of Switzerland and of which Data Worlds project of Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts is a founding member, recently commenced its operations
As a national thematic network, the Swiss Alliance for Data-Intensive Services will receive the support of the Commission for Technology and Innovation (CTI) for the next four years with the aim of helping it become a driver of innovation. The alliance, which also uses the shorter “data+service” name, intends to turn Switzerland into an internationally recognized hub of activities for adding value from data and for developing new products and services that rely on expertise in digital technology.

- data integration, governance and sharing.
Anyone working in a research or business field is welcome to join these expert groups. The heads of the Data Worlds project at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts would be happy to help with expanding the network.
Companies that want to learn more about their potential in this field or those with expertise in industrial services relating to Industry 4.0, the internet of things and digital technology and that would like to help launch mobile services for people, should contact Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.
