About the Regional Forum

HYPE's & ATIZO's Regional Innovation Forums are focused on innovation management. They are designed for impact, and encourage the sharing of successes and failures at innovation, so participants can learn and advance towards their goals. You will come away feeling energized, armed with insights, with new connections to fellow professionals.

This event will be hosted by BKW, and is organized with our Swiss Partner ATIZO.

We limit the number of participants, so that collaboration is high, and participants are able to share their experience and ask questions in an intimate environment.
