VNL is a Swiss Association of Logistics Networks, supported by Innosuisse and the Swiss Confederation as one of the nine National Thematic Networks (NTN). 

Our mission is to bring together academia and industry with the scope of innovating in logistics and supply chain. We have regular events and working groups in which we use as a platform to bring these two worlds together. VNL Switzerland has several running projects and working groups, which are supported by the Swiss Federal Government. We are always happy to connect with interest parties who would like to participate to the projects or require support to set up an Innosuisse project themselves.
