What does regiosuisse do?

On behalf of the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO), regiosuisse supports the implementation of the New Regional Policy (NRP) at state, cantonal and regional level. This is done by providing systematic knowledge management, opportunities for networking and further education.


Acquiring knowledge − and exploiting it

Our main task is to build a knowledge system for the NRP and regional development in general. All professionals working in regional development should be supported and motivated by this system to stay adaptive, creative and innovative. These professionals and inhabitants living and working in the regions determine whether a NRP-project is successful and whether the competitiveness and innovative capacity of a region can be improved.


regiosuisse as an address for knowledge management

Through our knowledge management we acquire knowledge relevant for practical use in the framework of the NRP and regional development, we develop it further − together with professionals working in these areas − and make it accessible to the broader public. The practical experience of regional development professionals is most important in this context − we try to make it accessible, usable and available.


regiosuisse as a network unit

As a network unit we support the networking and cooperation of all professionals involved in regional development. Through our services we encourage the exchange of knowledge and experience as well as the expansion and consolidation of social networks.
