New research-led university, Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT), will host its first Insights in Technology Conference in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, on Monday December 16, 2019. The one-day scientific conference will welcome pioneering students, academics, the global business community and the public to partake in an exciting programme of events.
This is the first event to be held in Schaffhausen since the launch of SIT earlier this year. It will bring together partners from SIT’s global network to the canton of Schaffhausen itself, demonstrating why the region was chosen as the campus hub of the international university.
Attendees will be invited to engage in collaborative discussion about transformative science for a sustainable society and will hear from distinguished speakers about emerging areas of scientific and technical research. Key industrial players from the Schaffhausen region will also address major challenges and will present future technology solutions.
Comprised of three parts: the Nano Conference, the Public Pop-Science Talk and a Science Evening, the event will showcase the exceptional scope of SIT as the university expands in the future.
The Nano Conference, which begins with a poster session at 9.00am, will welcome prominent keynote speakers throughout the day, including Nobel laureate Wolfgang Ketterle, professor of physics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and director of the MIT-Harvard Center of Ultracold Atoms.
“The Insights in Technologies Conference offers just a glimpse into the pioneering projects taking place at SIT. We want to break down barriers with an event that can be thought provoking and inspiring for all our attendees — no matter their prior technical knowledge,” said Bertrand Meyer, professor at new technology University, SIT.
SIT is a private, non-profit university that offers tertiary education, research opportunities, and an entrepreneurial environment in the areas of Computer Science, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Blockchain, and Digital Law.
