Take part in this innovation experience to develop the skills for solving today's challenges. Together.
Thematic Focus: SOCIAL INNOVATION x DIGITAL
"Technologies [..] are exponentially increasing their role, changing the current way of doing things, often working in combination to offer a dramatic evolution in these segments and further address Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)."
The world is changing rapidly. Most of the long-term challenges we are facing today bring major social consequences with them: climate change, biodiversity loss, education, migration, or the ageing society.
It is no longer sufficient to solve complex challenges as stand-alone solutions. We need the cooperation of the public, politics, technology and the sciences.
Expect to work together in mixed teams from Zurich-based universities. Science-based, and free to create.
A mix of expert inputs, peer feedback, coaching and a lot of hands-on teamwork.
Connect with other students, change makers and role models from the social innovation ecosystem.
Understand how to innovate for social good by practically testing your prototype.

“The biggest part of our digital transformation is changing the way we think.”
The Innovators Camp will take place at ZKSD (Zurich Knowledge Center for Sustainable Development), a space created for sustainable projects in Zurich.
This is where we all will team up, experiment, test and validate our concepts, supercharge our ideas for good and build tomorrow’s innovation!
The Innovators Camp is a joint initiative by two major universities in Zurich born out of one strong mission: Connecting the magic of creativity with the power of science to create a future we want.
