About Us


INNOSQUARE is a Swiss, non-profit association created in 2015 by the High School of Engineering and Architecture Fribourg (HEIA-FR). This technology and innovation platform operates from the BlueFACTORY innovation park in Fribourg, Switzerland. This provides a fertile environment for entrepreneurship and innovation though interactions between business and high schools and through the development of key competences. 

INNOSQUARE benefits from a credit grant from the canton of Fribourg to create three Competence Centres in support of the HEIA-FR. The platform manages two of the canton of

Fribourg’s New Regional Policy Cluster development projects for the period 2016 to 2019.

The INNOSQUARE platform currently consists of three Competence Centres and three Clusters.
