The government supports the construction of the allergy campus in Davos. To this end, the cantonal contribution under the title “System Relevant Infrastructures” amounts to a maximum of CHF 2.25 million. It also grants a cantonal contribution of around CHF 580,000 as an equivalent of the federal loan (CHF 2 million) under the new regional policy (NRP).
The Allergy Campus Davos is to become a centre of competence with international appeal. Top-level research, clinical care and application, training and further education as well as the organisation of scientific and application-oriented congresses, conferences and workshops will be united in one location. The close proximity of the partners, the Swiss Institute for Allergy and Asthma Research (SIAF), the Christine Kühne Center for Allergy Research and Education (CK-CARE) and the Davos High Mountain Clinic, will generate important synergies on campus. Research results can be incorporated into clinical work and thus implemented in practical application. This will substantially strengthen Graubünden as an economic and research location.
