Description

China Hardware Innovation Camp, DemoDay@MassChallenge switzerland

4 teams of students. 4 prototypes designed in Switzerland & manufactured in China.

Come and see what an interdisciplinary group of students from EPFL, ECAL and UNIL can achieve after starting from a blank page. You will have a chance to hear the 4 teams presenting their projects as well as see the actual prototypes.

A round table will then take place to share on interdisciplinarity and how China can be an accelerator in the process of developing a hardware product.

The guests attending are students from CHIC, representatives and students from the higher education institutions of Canton of Vaud, representatives from the board of Higher Education, and startups and mentors from MassChallenge Switzerland.
