Together for an innovative and world-leading Swiss metaverse ecosystem: 47 partners from business, science and administration found the Swiss Metaverse Association - including MME.

The goal of this association, founded in February 2023 in Bern, is to create a broad-based metaverse ecosystem and to advocate for attractive framework conditions in Switzerland, so that new business models, companies and jobs can be created.

The 47 founding members include organizations, banks, international companies, startups, universities, associations and individuals. In the past meetings with the founding members, it has become clear that the metaverse opens many possibilities and opportunities, but also brings with it questions and challenges - accordingly, the members' need to exchange ideas and pursue interesting questions is very great.

Various events are planned within the framework of the Swiss Metaverse Association, and working groups are being formed to address specific issues and topics. Current priorities include the following topics: Tax, the Industrial Metaverse, Regulation, Arts and Culture, Research and Education, Insurance and Banking, Technology and Infrastructure, Health, and Tourism and Sports. Additionally, it is planned to write a white paper and create a Swiss Metaverse Ecosystem Map.
