Our interest in Geneva was related to the opportunity to stay close to different European markets. From a logistical point of view, Geneva is close to Italy, Germany, France and the UK. We also knew that we could get access to qualified resources already here through cooperation with leading institutions. For example, we have hired IMD graduates and high-level technicians in electrical engineering and design with experience at CERN. Geneva is also a place where we can attract people, because it is known to have a good range of services for them and their families.
