Led by the need and the opportunity to modernize chemical laboratories and accelerate the discovery of breakthrough materials and molecules that are urgently needed to address the big challenges in health and energy, Atinary Technologies and JAG Group are expanding their collaboration. Atinary and JAG will offer smart robotics and automation technology as a turnkey solution to transform R&D in high-impact sectors, such as pharma, biotech, and clean energy, among others.

This partnership will also strengthen and promote the unique Swiss innovation ecosystem with a global vision. Atinary’s Swiss office and R&D lab are at Biopole in Lausanne, and JAG Group’s headquarters are in Brügg.

Atinary’s leading artificial intelligence (AI) and machine-learning (ML) technology and Self-Driving Labs® platform (SDLabs) enable companies and research labs to discover and develop better, greener and cheaper breakthrough materials and molecules 10x faster.

JAG Group is a global turnkey solution provider in Plant engineering, Process automation and Robotic systems, being active for more than 40 years with offices in Switzerland, the Czech Republic and Australia. In total, the JAG Group employs around 260 people.

This partnership will strengthen collaborations and expand the reach of Atinary’s SDLabs integrated with JAG’s robotics and automation solutions. This turnkey solution will be available to clients who are looking to gain a competitive advantage by accelerating R&D, increasing productivity, reducing time to market, and running more sustainable R&D operations.

JAG Group and Atinary Technologies offer a unique turnkey solution that combines our expertise in robotics, automation, and artificial intelligence to transform R&D and scientific discoveries with the Self-Driving Labs® technology. We are laying the foundation today for the smart factories and the labs of the future.
