Huawei Plans Big R&D Investment in Switzerland

by swisschambei in Business

Chinese telecoms giant Huawei plans to invest heavily in research in Switzerland, it says. This would create about 1,000 new research jobs, Huawei deputy director for Switzerland Felix Kramer told Swiss television SRF. He said discussions were under way and there was no timetable yet. Kramer said the focus would be on skills where Switzerland is a leader and which are relevant for Huawei in the medium term. “We are particularly looking for this expertise in the fields of physics, IT, nanotechnology, science of materials and other sciences,” he told SRF, adding that the firm also envisages “forms of interdisciplinary cooperation”. As well as being neutral and stable, Switzerland’s technical institutes make it an advantageous research base, according to Kramer. Huawei is also planning to invest in other European countries, also “using the country’s strengths”. For example, it plans to invest in an industrial design institute in Paris and a centre of expertise in London for global finance.
