Switzerland is hoping to intensify its research co-operation with India in the fields of material sciences, nanotechnology, health and medical sciences, and information and communication technologies with the establishment of a global science and technology outpost in Bangalore.

Dubbed Swissnex India, the outpost will be set up as a section of the Swiss Consulate General in Bangalore. It will serve as a venue for Swiss and Indian organisations to share their knowledge and form partnerships in science, technology, higher education and innovation. Several scientific and technology institutes will also be set up as part of the co-operation deal.

Switzerland's State Secretariat for Education and Research and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs run Swissnex. The India outpost is the fifth Swissnex centre on foreign soil after San Francisco, Boston, Shanghai and Singapore.
