Entrepreneurs convert science to business

Abstract:
A drive to commercialise Swiss scientific projects is reaping dividends with a record number of spin-off companies at Zurich's Federal Institute of Technology.

HeiQ Materials is one of nearly 200 enterprises to make an impact in the marketplace after graduating from the institute's laboratories in the last few years.



The company has made use of nanotechnology - the manipulation of microscopic particles - to embed infinitesimal amounts of silver into fabrics. The silver produces ions that prevent bacteria from proliferating and producing nasty odours - good news for sports lovers.
