Fachkonferenz Labor 4.0 am 27.9.2017

Project conducted on behalf of the German Ministry of Economics and Energy.
During the Swiss-German Cooperation Days in Biotechnologies (25th to 29th of September) 10 leading German companies from the biotechnology sector travelled to Zurich to meet local cooperation partners and clients and to get an insight into the market.
On the 26th of September an information event for the German participants was organized in cooperation with the Greater Zurich Area and Health Tech Cluster Switzerland. On the following day the industry conference “Laboratory 4.0 and new solutions for efficient processes in biotechnology” as well as bilateral meetings with Swiss companies took place. At the conference major industry trends like digitization, automation, flexible financing and innovative ingredient production were discussed including partners like Swiss Biotech Association or Biosaxony.
Furthermore, a site visit at the department of Life Sciences at ZHAW in Wädenswil completed the journey and the picture of the sector in Switzerland.
The aim of the week was to intensify the cooperation in biotechnology between German and Swiss market players and to enhance the mutual exchange of experiences. 
Many thanks to our Swiss and German participants, partners and supporters of the event!
