Discover the latest innovations from HUG and UNIGE


The 14th HUG Innovation Day, organised by the HUG’s Innovation Center, will take place virtually on 29 October from 1:30PM to 5PM.


The Innovation Day is an opportunity to give visibility each year to the innovative ideas and projects initiated by the staff of the HUG and the University of Geneva. It allows for interaction and the sharing of experiences, and is a trigger for the development of projects and the marketing of the best ideas. The Innovation Centre’s team and a committee of experts are available to support the development of projects before, during and after the event.

Every year, an Innovation Prize is awarded and two other projects are rewarded with trophies. A “Jury’s Favourite” prize is also awarded and the public is invited to nominate the winners of the Best Pitch and Best Poster Award! A “Startup” prize is also offered, entitling a project with startup support from a Geneva-based incubator.

Projects are selected by the Scientific Innovation Committee. Under the chairmanship of Prof. Karl-Heinz Krause, this committee is made up of representatives from our privileged partners as well as staff members from the HUG and UNIGE with a successful valuation track record. A jury of around ten members specialising in medical innovation determines the finalists after an initial selection of all the candidates for the prize.

The choice of the winning projects is based on precise criteria: innovative and creative character, potential benefit for patients and the institution, scientific quality, as well as commercial potential (or potential development).



Information regarding the programme and registration requirements will be update on the event’s website.
