Open Program

Traditionally, an important part of Lift Conference program consists of hands-on workshops and masterclasses, proposed by the community. They offer participants the opportunity to explore a topic in a more in-depth, interactive way and thus connect smoothly with fellow participants around shared interests.

Lift Basel will offer one open program session offered each day. Discover the first confirmed workshops of Lift Basel 2015 below - more breakouts will be announced on a regular basis in the coming weeks.
