This is what some of our partners say about working with us - thank you!


In 2017, the staatslabor accompanied the annual management retreat of the City of Zurich’s Finance Department. We greatly benefited from the staatslabor’s constructive inputs and the exchange on relevant future issues in the public sector; especially with regards to the ongoing digitalisation of our society and Zurich as one of the leading smart cities in Switzerland.

Municipal administrations are doing much more than just managing; they develop and support highly complex projects. The staatslabor supports the transfer of know-how between cities with its precise inputs.

The team at the staatslabor supported us in 2018 as part of a multi-stakeholder dialogue on the development of the Federal Council’s strategy “Digital Switzerland”. They convinced us with their professionalism, fresh perspectives and innovative methods.

In 2018, the staatslabor team supported the management of the Office of Curatorship and Professional Guardianship in a general reflection on its governance and culture of collaboration. We greatly appreciated the relevance of an external perspective that was truly adapted to the public sector. We are looking forward to future collaborations.

The staatslabor allowed us to meet public organisations facing the same challenges as us and to learn from their experiences. We were also able to meet with competent, approachable experts for concrete and quick support. Thanks to the staatslabor, we were able to take a big step forward in our work of reflection and designing a new approach to prevent tobacco use among children and adolescents.

Thanks to the staatslabor, the project quickly took shape and gained momentum. The first workshop was well prepared and refreshingly different. The workshop feedback was very good. Developing the project together was an intensive process and created real added value. The results of the pilot project are very promising and suggest great potential for future cooperation.
