The history of mankind is marked by “trial and error”. Constant trying and learning from mistakes make us successful. Matches, penicillin, Teflon, microwaves – the best products are often the result of coincidence. First there is the vision, then the attempt and then the discovery: it works! Anyone who’s courageous and tries something out may fail. But if you give up, you won’t succeed. Only those who generate knowledge from the experiment can develop a stable business model.
The Swiss Innovation Forum (SIF) bridges the gap between science and industry. Best cases and case studies illustrate how this applies in day-to-day business. The programme is varied, the impressions lasting and the speakers enriching. At the SIF you will receive your “annual dose of inspiration”.
