In the Grisons we produce intelligent breathing apparatus, to help seriously ill patients to breathe independently again; high-performance polyamides for mobile applications in cell phones, tablets or virtual-reality headsets and measuring instruments for satellites to research the influence of the sun on the earth's climate.

In a dual education system we attend universities of applied science and advanced technical colleges while also gaining practical vocational training. 20 research institutes and clinics, 6 universities of applied science and 14 advanced technical colleges are located in the Grisons catchment area while practical vocation training is provided in 250 professions.
