Industry members once again described the event as “inspiring”, “useful”, “valuable”, and “enjoyable”.
The Swiss Robotics Industry Day took place on 2 Nov 2017 at the SwissTech Convention Center in Lausanne for the fourth consecutive year. In this edition, organized in conjunction with digitalswitzerland, and sponsored by the Canton Vaud, we had the honour of welcoming Federal Councillor Johann Schneider-Ammann and EPFL President Martin Vetterli, along with industry and academic representatives.
We are also glad to announce that this edition marked a significant participation increment, with over 90 world-wide renowned robotics companies present and actively networking around the 70 posters and 50 technology demonstrations including 20 company booths.
The event successfully offered invited guests the chance to learn about investment opportunities and state of the art technology spin-offs and SMEs. Participants also experienced cutting edge technology demonstrations and were able to discuss future trends in robotics with the experts. Start-ups and researchers also had the opportunity to create new business links and forge new contacts.
Alongside this programme, this year’s Swiss Robotics Industry Day proposed a diverse and dynamic group of speakers, both from research and industry, as well as panellists who provided in-depth expert insights into the future of robotics.
We would like to thank our sponsors and all the participants: guests, speakers and exhibitors for making the event a success.
