CANCELLED – Databooster Matchmaking Event

The NTN Innovation Booster – Databooster powered by Innosuisse is a community with an open innovation culture, in which key players around data-based value creation work together to develop innovation ideas and explore new business areas and approaches. The Databooster aims to bring together actors of all segments to ideate and develop radical solutions.

In doing so, they give Swiss companies a decisive competitive advantage and create important added value for the Swiss economy and society.

We would very much like to draw your attention to the following event and invite you to participate in the idea submission.

This event is an opportunity for every one of you: who has a cool project idea and is in need of a partner and/or even a feedback on the idea and also persons who don’t actually share an idea there but are interested in listening to them. This is meant for researchers, startups, SMEs as well as corporations. There are ideas shared and there might be just one that strikes you as the thing to do!

We invite submissions of ideas related to all aspects of data-based value creation. We especially want to solicit ideas in these focus topics, namely: Industry 4.0, Language-based Human-Machine Interaction, Smart Services and Spatial Data Analytics.

Out of all well-defined presented ideas a jury will award the best 3 innovation teams for funding by 10-20 kCHF to further shape or test your idea.

The Databooster Matchmaking event will take place on the December 2, 2021, 13:00 – 17:00 at Fernfachhochschule Schweiz in Zurich (Gleisarena at Zollstrasse 17).
