The Concept

We are connected with the world,
anchored in Europe, and
rooted in Basel.

uptownBasel is an international centre of excellence for the industry 4.0. On the historic Schoren site in Arlesheim near Basel, a development and production site is being created where selected technology companies and other organisations will be located.

The focus is on industrial manufacturing, healthcare and logistics sectors as well as the interdisciplinary function of digitalisation. As a platform for connected companies, uptownBasel aims to drive knowledge transfer between sectors and disciplines. By introducing companies to potential partners, it will help to bring embryonic ideas to life in the fields of robotics, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, future mobility and agile working.

uptownBasel is made possible through the private ownership of the Monique and Thomas Staehelin Family and is being implemented by Fankhauser Arealentwicklungen.
