Share this event

The InnoPACTT 10th anniversary event is taking place on 22 April 2024, in Lausanne



Over the past 10 years, the InnoPACTT program has supported 34 entrepreneurial projects at UNIL and CHUV, and encouraged researchers with innovative results.

To celebrate the successes of the program supporting startups and innovative research, PACTT has brought together experts in the field of research and innovation, political decision-makers and funding agents.

The keynote speakers of this afternoon of celebration will tell us more about the institutional, cantonal, and national support available for researchers who wish to innovate and what our alumni have achieved, both by creating successful startups or by taking alternative professional pathways.

A panel comprising various experts in the research and innovation field, will give you the opportunity to learn more about the current landscape and future developments, including new opportunities for social and environmental impact projects.
