The University President Andrea Schenker-Wicki will introduce the University's new innovation activities and the founders/CEOs of two University spin-offs AOT and T3 Pharma will share the greatest challenges and most joyous moments of their entrepreneurship journey.

A special guest of the 1st University of Basel Innovation Day is Jean-Paul Clozel, CEO of Idorsia, spin-off of Actelion where he was formerly CEO. He will share what drives him to keep innovating and how his new venture will be"reaching out for more".
