Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT) is an international institute founded by entrepreneurs, led by scientists and advanced by world-class researchers.

Founded in 2019 and headquartered in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, SIT’s contemporary design creates a unique ecosystem where the world’s leading experts in Computer Science, Physics, and Business come together to find innovative solutions to global challenges through transformative technological advances.

SIT is comprised of an educational institute, research center and vast internal and external ecosystem, collaborating with some of the world’s top academic and science institutions including Carnegie-Mellon University and the School of Computing at the National University of Singapore (NUS).


According to analysts, 85% of all AI projects fail.1 Because AI is one of the most investigated and fantasized topics in industry today, many R&D organizations create AI-based solutions ad hoc, without long-term vision. Success requires robust software engineering research and practice on how to make AI-based systems for the next 20 years.
