Pro Helvetia supports computer games, virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) and interactive comics, as well as any other form of digital content whose use requires a high level of interaction. The focus is primarily on high-quality and innovative projects with international potential that combine creativity, state-of-the-art technology and marketability.

Pro Helvetia offers the following forms of support:

  • Funding for development, production and distribution via an annual call for projects.
  • Support to enable individual participation of Swiss creatives in international trade fairs, upon request.
  • International promotion through delegations at international industry meetings such as Gamescom in Cologne, the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco or VR Days Europe in Amsterdam.
  • Promotion of initiatives in Switzerland that enhance the visibility and the competencies of local developers of digital worlds.
  • Support of events, including the Ludicious – Zürich Game Festival and the World VR Forum in Crans-Montana as well as hackathons, game jams, workshops and conferences. Priority is given to events that foster exchange among Swiss practitioners and help them gain international recognition.

Pro Helvetia has been promoting interactive digital media since 2010 and is thus one of the pioneers in the advancement of this young arts discipline. With its support programmes «GameCulture» and «Mobile – in touch with digital creation» it helped raise national and international awareness of the Swiss digital scene. In its support of interactive media developers, Pro Helvetia cooperates with partners from the worlds of culture, innovation and business promotion as well as private sponsors and investors.

The measures described above are part of Pro Helvetia’s developed «New models of collaboration – Culture and Business» programme.
