Highlights 2015

  • An insufficient number of young people is interested in technical and engineering sciences. To this end, SATW organized a public workshop addressing the topic of extracurricular STEM-activities. In addition, seven TecDays were held. On these days, the students select various modules in the fields of technical and natural sciences.
  • The danger of cyber espionage and interference can be no longer ignored. Switzerland lacks sufficient IT security professionals for protecting its IT infrastructure. SATW was co-organizer of the Swiss Cyber Storm Cyber Security Challenge 2015. Its aim is to mitigate the problem by offering a competitive, yet fun platform for finding young cyber talents.
  • SATW published its first foresight report (Technology Outlook) in March. It is addressed at decision makers in politics and industry, identifies technological advances of economic and societal relevance for Switzerland and lists the strengths of and opportunities for the workplace Switzerland.
