About the Swiss-Korean Innovation Week

During the Swiss-Korean Innovation Week happening on May 20-24, 2019 organized by the Science & Technology Office Seoul, experts from Switzerland and Korea active in the academic and industrial worlds are expected to bring visions and examples for a “smart living” through the convergence of technologies in services, which make our cities more sustainable. Nowadays, highly densely populated areas of our planet highlight the need to find new alternative ways to facilitate communication, mobility, and management of data; climate change warns our governments on the importance of investments in new renewable resources; aging society asks for more attention to customized healthcare. The integration and combination of the achievements in the fields of artificial intelligence, virtual and augmented reality, IoT and intelligent materials offer the potential to answer many of the open questions in the era of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
