Kick-Off Event: FEMSPIN - Promoting spin-off activities of female academics
Female academics are rarely involved in the commercialization of knowledge from research & development (R&D) at universities, both internationally and in Switzerland. Their share in spinoff creation is only very small, which means that considerable potential is lost to Switzerland as a country of innovation.
This collaborative project of the Federal Institutes of Technology at Zürich and Lausanne, the Paul Scherrer Institute, the University of Zurich and University of Basel, as well as the Swiss universities of applied sciences in Western (HES-SO), Southern (SUPSI) and Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW) aims at promoting equal opportunities in the field of spin-off activities by setting a specific focus of women
Information on the kick-off planned for this project at the FHNW as well as the Swissuniversities project summary can be found in the links below.
Kick-Off Registration deadline: April 15, 2022
