Information and communication technology (ICT)

More than 700 companies employing some 32,000 people work in the field of information and communication technology in the canton of Vaud, divided equally between research and development and the production and distribution of high value added products and services.

This pool of know-how covers everything from software programming to data storage, processing, analysis and transmission. Multimedia applications and man/machine interfaces are two new emerging fields in the canton along with e-commerce, which is developing quickly.

Active and productive research is carried out in the ICT sector, notably by the School of Computer and Communication Sciences at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne (EPFL), which specialises in computer security for instance, or the Information Systems Institute at the University of Lausanne (UNIL) or even by the computer science department and the telecommunications department at Vaud School of Business and Engineering (HEIG-VD).
