Spotlight on our strategic research areas
From precision manufacturing and renewable energies to digitalization technologies, we provide the expertise, technologies, processes, and services that can add a decisive advantage to all our industrial partners.

Digitalization

Digital technologies are growing at an unprecedented pace, fed by a web of interconnected devices (the Internet of Things) and smart machinery (Industry 4.0). They are rapidly forcing every business sector to reinvent itself—from energy to precision agriculture, to personalized health and manufacturing.

 

Precision manufacturing

Precision manufacturing technology has captured the imagination of every industry segment—from aerospace to watchmaking. Our innovation in manufacturing techniques such as 3D printing, combined with our commitment to industry 4.0, is a step toward maintaining Europe’s flexible and competitive precision manufacturing industry.

 

The future of Energy

As energy evolves to meet the ever-expanding needs of the 21st century, CSEM is at the forefront of technological and digital developments across the fields of renewable energies and energy management services. We are using advanced technologies to help our customers thrive throughout this smarter landscape, optimizing renewable energies and their integration, storage, monitoring, control, and maintenance.

Optics Balzers
The key factors to success on the development of a biosensor for water analysis were our close relationship with CSEM as a powerful research partner and a strong conviction with regards to the center's practicality in the market.
Optics Balzers, the manufacturer of optically coated components and assemblies, is collaborating with CSEM on the development of a biosensor for water analysis. The sensor is also intended to be used later to measure hormone residues in sea water. The factors that were instrumental in the Liechtenstein-based company launching the project were its close relationship with CSEM as a powerful research partner and a strong conviction with regards to the center's practicality in the market. The declared long-term goal is to develop a complete biochip that will be produced in large quantities in Optics Balzers' clean rooms.
