THE TERRACE

The terrace at PARK INNOVAARE

Launched last summer and successfully repeated this winter, our series of events THE TERRACE is designed to meet  our friends and colleagues from the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) and FHNW, and anybody interested in PARK INNOVAARE who happens to be nearby, in a relaxing and informal context. We've spend great times together and met many interesting people and we intend to proceed! But this time, we invite others to join us: Tesla in May, ZurzibietRegio in June, and Koboldgames in July. More partners and more surprises to expect in August.


This spring and summer, PARK INNOVAARE is going to relauch THE TERRACE as a monthly gathering at deliveryLAB (PSI/West). Kick-off was Wednesday, May 3rd, from 4.00 pm to 6.30 pm. Next event is on August 2nd, same time same place. Join us for some drinks and chats.

We are looking forward to see you stepping by to our deliveryLAB to learn more about the innovation park right next door to the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI). Share with us your research ideas and projects, discuss the future applications of novel technologies, and learn about our latest developments… - or just chat with us and your friends.

Here are a few good reasons to come to "THE TERRACE"

  • Because you will find interesting people where innovation accelerates
  • Because good ideas emerge from where innovation accelerates
  • Because you will enjoy being where innovation accelerates

Join us & stay for a chat with a good music and free drinks!

No accreditation needed! Just pop in! Everybody is welcome.

Innovation Summit - the beauty of science in photography

Innovation Summit - Polish-Swiss Research Programme

Science knows no borders. International research teams work together on groundbreaking projects to pave the way for innovation. To deepen and strengthen this scientific potential, collaborations between the countries need to be fostered. Thus, the Polish-Swiss Research Programme was born, as one of the first five-year collaboration projects between Switzerland and Eastern Europe. A total of 48 institutes, including the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), participated in the programme between 2011 and 2016. Now, PARK INNOVAARE invites you to learn more about the programme itself and the research projects implemented and to contemplate the beauty of science captured in photographs taken by Marcin Zieba and exhibited at the deliveryLAB.


For five years, research has been conducted in five scientific areas: information and communication technologies, energy and renewable energy sources, nanotechnologies, health, and the environment. Over 500 scientists worked together within the programme on a number of innovative projects.

For example, the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI) in collaboration with the Poznan University of Technology conducted a research study which in the future will enable the construction of electrochemical capacitors, known as supercapacitors. This technology is already being used to power public transport vehicles and to support engine operation in electric and hybrid cars. However, for it to reach its full market potential, researchers must first get a better understanding of the most important processes related to electricity storage. This is what this joint project aimed to achieve.

Science knows no country, because knowledge belongs to humanity, and is the torch which illuminates the world

Louis Pasteur

INNOVATION SUMMIT is dedicated to the results of this Polish-Swiss adventure with science. Programme leaders from both countries and Paul Scherrer Institute scientists participating in the program will guide you throughout this initiative, while stunning photographs by Marcin Zieba will figuratively walk you through the research labs where many groundbreaking discoveries were made.

DISRUPTIVE MORNING

innovation event "DISRUPTIVE MORNING": Discuss technology and innovation strategies

Peer Briefing On Relevant Topics in Technology & Innovation with the technology leader in X-Ray detection DECTRIS Ltd.

DISRUPTIVE MORNING is an open and highly interactive platform for project leaders and R&D senior executives from various industries as well as for researchers in academia. The purpose of this platform is to provide new insights and ideas and to build solid, ongoing relationships between those at the forefront of innovation. The event takes place on a regular basis and at different locations.


Agile Development at DECTRIS Ltd.

DECTRIS develops and produces hybrid photon counting X-Ray detectors for scientific and industrial customers. They are designed to determine deep molecular structures with an increasingly high level of precision – a task which requires the ongoing development of more advanced high-resolution detectors.

To keep up with its customers’ growing technology requirements, DECTRIS is constantly improving its products. However, innovations are difficult to plan in detail. That is why the development process must be able to adapt to the changing requirements and have a high level of agility. Unfortunately, reality in development adds another level of complexity, as not all aspects of the development process are equally agile.

At DECTRIS, for example, while the agile method "SCRUM" is used in software development, the implementation of this method is not always possible in hardware development. It is therefore important to find the best agile approaches and methods for each aspect of the development process. Dr. Matthias Schneebeli will present how the development teams at DECTRIS cope with that challenge.
