Selected projects will be exposed at the Swiss Pavilion and team members will be invited to take part in activities, such as workshops and joint panels. Mentors from Swiss universities and companies will advise the teams, facilitating exchanges and strategic connections for future collaborations.
Finalists will be given opportunities to further develop their project, in partnership with our judges, mentors and local incubators. The best proposal will receive an award during a ceremony at the Swiss Pavilion
