This decision reinforces the position of the canton as an undisputable leader of Research and Development in Europe. Pierre-Fran¨ois Unger and the Geneva Economic Development Office have played a determining role in establishing the European Headquarters of 4-Labs in Geneva by facilitating procedures with the various administrative offices, as well as actively proposing the best solutions for this new company.
