About us


CSEM is an internationally recognized Swiss innovation leader that develops and transfers disruptive technologies with a high societal impact and multiple industry applications.


Founded in 1984 and headquartered in Neuchâtel, CSEM is an internationally recognized innovation specialist with over 550 employees across six locations in Switzerland and more than 200 registered patents. We develop disruptive technologies with a high societal impact in the fields of precision manufacturing, digitalization, ultra-low-power electronics, optical elements, AI, and sustainable energy. We then transfer these innovations to industry partners in a variety of sectors, including renewable energy, healthcare, watchmaking, and aerospace, or encourage start-up creations. As a public-private, non-profit organization, our mission is to support the innovation of Swiss companies and strengthen the economy through ongoing collaboration with leading universities, research institutes, and industrial partners.



We believe smart technological solutions are part of the answer to the complex environmental, economic, and social challenges we face. Working alongside academia and industry, we transfer game-changing innovations from lab to market and help our customers to develop impacting products and digital services that leverage our deep scientific, engineering and manufacturing expertise.

We are rigorous in our science, precise in our approach, and always inspired by the possibilities of collaboration and creativity. That way we don’t just have to dream of a brighter future – we can roll our sleeves up and help build it.
