The University of Applied Sciences and Arts of Southern Switzerland (SUPSI) is one of the nine professional universities recognised by the Swiss Confederation. Founded under federal law, SUPSI is characterised by cutting-edge education which unites classical theoretical-scientific instruction with a professional orientation. Great care is given to research, carried out in key sectors on competitively acquired projects with large European and national agencies or mandated by organisations and institutions.

The SUPSI vision focuses particularly on relationships with partners in the territory, and on exploiting the full potential of its valued position in the national and international academic community. In fact, one of the university’s strong points is its ability to create networks and systems and to trigger research synergies between different subject areas, partners and projects.

Role in INCA: The SUPSI team is leading WP9, is the leader of certain tasks in WP1 and is participating in different tasks of WP1 and WP7.
