Swiss Innovation Forum: Playground for Innovations

Author: Switzerland Innovation

“PLAY” was the motto of the Swiss Innovation Forum, the national conference on innovation. Around 1,000 decision-makers from Swiss business, science, research, education, politics and media gathered in Basel on November 24 for this year’s edition of the leading Swiss innovation fair.

It was the second attendance at the fair for Switzerland Innovation and its five sites. Together, they manned a stand – perfect for presenting Switzerland Innovation Park. Our representatives seized the opportunity to familiarize the expert audience with the project, and exchange ideas with the many visitors.

The Swiss Innovation Forum staged inspiring talks and provided a playfully creative atmosphere. From the point of view of Switzerland Innovation, there were a number of highlights: Ampegon AG, a company associated with the Switzerland Innovation Park innovaare, received the accolade of the Swiss Technology Award. Another two companies from the same park were among the runners-up (see separate report).

After the positive experiences of the last two editions, the Swiss Innovation Forum has already become a fixture in Switzerland Innovation’s calendar for 2017. Thank you to all who contributed to this fantastic occasion, and we look forward to the next edition in Basel on November 16, 2017.
