Highlights 2017 & 2018

  • The SATW organised the 2018 euro-CASE conference near Zurich. Artificial Intelligence was the focus topic for the public conference on 24 September that attracted 120 participants and 30 speakers. Following the board meeting the next day, the delegates visited the IBM Research Centre.
     
  • In 2018 the SATW published a study investigating the development of the Swiss industry’s innovative strength in recent years. While Switzerland is regularly toping international rankings for innovation, the study produced some disturbing results. This provoked a large media echo and led to extensive, ongoing discussions with various stakeholders.
     
  • In 2017 the SATW started the public-private partnership programme Swiss TecLadies, an initiative to foster young female talent in tech. After qualifying by completing an online test, 45 girls between 13 and 16 years are undergoing a versatile development programme for nine months while been closely accompanied by one female mentor each.
