Welcome & Introduction

 

 

Keynote

 

 

 

 

PANEL: Fostering Innovation in Switzerland

The panel discussion will cover key themes surrounding robotic technology in Switzerland. These include addressing gaps in its industrial use and development, exploring the challenges involved in transferring new robotic developments to the industry, and identifying the strengths of robotic technology in Switzerland. Additionally, the discussion will focus on the most promising areas of robotic technological development both domestically and internationally. 

 

 

 

 

Presentation of the Innovation Booster Robotics

Innovation Booster Robotics is a program powered by the Swiss Innovation Agency, Innosuisse and based at Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). It promotes knowledge transfer and encourages co-operation with partners along the entire value chain of robotics.

Short highlights from three innovative projects

The purpose of this session is to showcase three projects funded by the Innovation Booster Robotics that have been specifically chosen for their radical innovations.

Short highlights from start-ups

The objective of this session is to feature emerging start-ups that will present their products and their journey.
