What we do

Swissintell is a nonprofit organization (which operates under art. 60 ff of the Swiss Civil Code) which was created in 2006 under the name Swiss Competitive Intelligence Association (SCIA). In 2016, for our 10 years anniversary, we updated our bylaws and changed our name to SWISSINTELL, which is the umbrella brand for:

Our goal is to connect all information professionals in Switzerland and provide a single entry-point for the Swiss Intelligence community. Since 2006, we have organised over 50 networking events in Zurich and Geneva. Today, we have over 350 members and a few sponsors supporting the implementation of our strategy, based on the 2014 thesis by Benjamin Calmant.

We also want to position ourselves as a Swiss research centre on intelligence topics, like our colleagues from the Cf2R in France.
