Switzerland is the world’s most innovative country. In international rankings, it has come out ahead of Sweden and the US for several years, according to the Global Innovation Index 2019. It also takes the top spot in the patent world for many key technologies. A stream of new ideas and the resulting patent applications are being added to the list of tried-and-tested products. The country’s inventive spirit knows no bounds, even during times of crisis. Developers and researchers are in top form, drawing up and rolling out urgently required solutions.
However, companies should not lose sight of the bigger picture while making daring strides and reaching key turning points – how can we secure tomorrow’s innovations today?
At the 15th edition of the Swiss Innovation Forum, we explore this question in light of its motto “NOW – It’s Time To Innovate”.
But this time, it is not only the motto and the presentations by experts from Switzerland and abroad that will be original and novel: the Swiss Innovation Forum will be held this year as a three-day online festival. This is our response to the current official guidelines for dealing with the coronavirus.
Also as an online festival the Swiss Innovation Forum (SIF) offers a platform for dialogue and interaction between experts from the fields of business, academia, education, politics and the media. With its more than 40 exhibitors, the Future Expo delivers virtual insights into the world of tomorrow. Get to know numerous start-ups, along with the innovative ideas and minds behind them.
