Case Study Bay Area Science Festival: Innovative Content


swissnex has partnered with the Bay Area Science Festival since its inception to contribute public programming that shines a light on Switzerland’s excellence and ingenuity, and bring visibility to Swiss research like EPFL’s Biorobots (2015).

The Festival’s director, Kishore Hari, says of swissnex content in general, “How it’s framed, the experience you can have with a technology is totally wildly different than what you get anywhere else. One week, virtual reality, the next week biorobots, the next week fashion. On some level it doesn’t seem to go together but over time you see this emerging thread of the future, of how technology balances with science and society, and it’s just a beautiful fit in San Francisco. It’s such a unique niche that it occupies. swissnex San Francisco is amazing.”
