On December 14 during the annual Science Counsellors Meeting in Bern, several heads of S&T Offices in Asia and the USA joined forces to discuss open innovation at the Head Office of Swiss Post in Bern.
After a brief introduction by the organizers, the two regions discussed how the Swissnex Network collaborates with partners from industry. These short presentations were followed by a fascinating presentation by the Head of Open Innovation at Swiss Post, Mr. Thierry Golliard. Did you know that “Die Post” is working on self-driving cars? Or that drones might soon be introduced to deliver packages to remote villages?
The event ended with a lively discussion and a networking apero where many business cards were exchanged and future contacts made.
