00:00:02
okay um it's my great pleasure to introduce my movies d.
00:00:08
a vice president for innovation and transfer of technology
00:00:14
and keep a fair you self made him look which is quite famous
00:00:18
on entrepreneurship for africa and translated into chinese mm so and um
00:00:25
and he has been from the very beginning very supportive to does id of
00:00:29
oh and i just ask him to say how we perceive these from the top of the school okay from the top
00:00:36
of good so welcome everyone uh have a good afternoon i'm i'm really pleased to be here and and uh
00:00:42
i'm actually at the end of all the pages so you heard a lot of people talking already so i make a little pitch about
00:00:47
why i think this is important that um and then you all have to get
00:00:50
funding to um so i i've been at the helm of the vice
00:00:55
present for innovation since generate and and in that capacity it's my pleasure to
00:00:59
welcome you all to to to e. p. f. l. the stops
00:01:02
to the ecosystem uh you will hear from from the president later at five
00:01:07
o'clock the president will give a speech so i do not officially welcome
00:01:10
your part of the management that's his job at but i was nonetheless
00:01:14
as as the person running device presently for innovation i want to
00:01:18
especially first thank p. l. for for pushing this this initiative forward it if it's
00:01:24
material to us in the sense not only the startup numbers you know
00:01:27
on the innovation park we have about a hundred twenty startups
00:01:31
located over there and if we come to twenty five or more stops here it's
00:01:34
a meaningful increase of startups on campus but what i find particularly interesting is
00:01:40
the the the bundle of competence that we're developing in that field and that's just remarkable because if you think about
00:01:46
the costs are rather the moog movement that we have been launching a couple of years ago
00:01:51
as as the first ones in europe i think no one has would have thought that
00:01:54
and a byproduct of this initiative is actually our increased expertise in educational technology
00:02:02
and and and if you allow me up a personal vote on that front i think eh
00:02:07
as a federal institution our drop to a large extent is to educate not only the
00:02:13
students here but in the twenty first century although the students know within switzerland
00:02:18
abroad and educational technology in that sense is the key catalyst to our ability to
00:02:23
to actually execute on that for a and if you think about the changing
00:02:27
uh requirements of of uh of the workplace if you think about the changing
00:02:32
the demands placed on workers and i speak particular digit
00:02:35
playstation uh educational technology and bringing educational content closer
00:02:40
to people who have a need to be educated on that front because they might be forty five
00:02:45
fifty fifty five sixty years old and are no longer equipped with the right tools on the job market
00:02:50
think educational technology and all its colours can play a vital role in
00:02:56
helping switching to make that shift helping countries to make that shift that's
00:03:00
and i think uh what what a purist doing and opinions doing
00:03:04
of the startups you're doing is just fabulous i heard that you had a lot of pages this often i would've laughter come
00:03:10
to look at them listen to them uh i i have the brochure here
00:03:13
with with the snippets i will look at those closely and and
00:03:17
if you allow me i will invite you for one of the other events because we like to showcase our startups as well to that
00:03:22
to the campus and we only get venture capitalists coming through who and we got
00:03:27
increase the altar bankers uh investment bankers with rich client somewhere in the
00:03:32
world trying to invest interesting startups and of course you know
00:03:35
if they asked me if there's an interesting startup i first think of of of the startup to on campus
00:03:40
um so in that sense uh we will call the on on you in the not too
00:03:45
distant future to give you some nice yeah visibility to others to the ecosystem et cetera
00:03:51
um maybe one final note what i'm trying to do as vice president of innovation is
00:03:55
to increase the exchange between the start up the lot firms and the campus
00:04:01
uh i think there's still some some work to be done to make this more fluid to make this
00:04:07
easier for parts now i've known professors on campus that have never even step into the innovation park
00:04:12
uh and this location here think it's it's you close to computer science you close to everything
00:04:17
you know so we just have to make this an eco system where people exchange ideas
00:04:22
what i'm with anything you want to you launches for instance and this is very operational as a as
00:04:28
an information but i come from bavaria so it's it might be understandable to like a like a
00:04:34
after work with with unlimited peer okay so that the ideas flowing l. i
00:04:40
don't know i i don't have any other tool in the repository
00:04:44
uh at least it works very well in bavaria you know so i have seen that first day
00:04:49
but that's not one initiative but we have many others we do ground for students we do support structures for students
00:04:55
and so on so i'm really looking forward to see you all at one or the other event don't a
00:05:00
few shy coming up to me if you have a recommendation of well we can further strengthen increase
00:05:05
the power of the ecosystem that's what one of my main missions isn't the vice presidents
00:05:09
of innovation and i wish you all know enjoyable afternoon but most of all uh
00:05:15
lots of success with your startups and if you would make a nice x. it remember
