Accenture has opened an innovation hub in Zurich to bring together specialist transformation capabilities from Accenture Studios in collaborative workspaces designed to foster co-creation with clients. The hub focuses on the creation of new customer services, spanning a range of design, innovation and technology capabilities in one location. Through the Accenture Studios, customers can envision, design and create products and services. 

In the Accenture Interactive Studio, clients can get their hands on and apply the latest digital products. The innovative workspace is equipped with all the tools needed to rapidly build and test prototypes. Contained within is a Fjord Studio, focused on design-led strategy, service design and product creation.

The Hub also features a Liquid Studio, where Accenture helps clients accelerate innovation and software deployment cycles. At the Liquid Studio, clients work side-by-side with Accenture professionals, building innovative products using technologies including artificial intelligence, blockchain and cloud.

Accenture Extended Reality (XR) capabilities will also be offered as part of the Innovation Hub. This group helps clients take advantage of augmented reality, virtual reality and mixed reality technologies. The XR capability is headed by the newly hired Marco Tempest, who has worked as Creative Technologist at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and is a Director's Fellow at the MIT Media Lab in Boston, Massachusetts.

The Innovation Hub brings to life an integral part of the Accenture Innovation Architecture, which draws together capabilities from research, ventures and labs to studios, innovation centres and delivery centres. The Innovation Hub in Zurich further expands Accenture's presence in Switzerland, becoming the new permanent home of the Fjord Zurich studio launched in October 2016.
