Summer Schools 2024: Developing Talents to Create Products for the Economy and Society

The three Summer Schools 2024 initiated by ZHAW Entrepreneurship are all about Planetary Health. In interdisciplinary teams, students develop business or product ideas for companies or launch start-ups in the fields of health, nutrition or the circular economy. In this way, they actively contribute to solving current challenges.

Which business or product ideas can contribute to a more sustainable and regenerative food system? Students at the ZHAW Entrepreneurship Food Tech Summer School, for example, are exploring these questions and delving deep into the world of proteins.

Comprehensive Program

The protein sector is facing a number of challenges that affect various aspects of production, sustainability, consumer behavior and technology development. By visiting various players in the food system, the participating students will be able to identify the most important challenges facing the protein sector. "By networking with important industry partners in the protein supply chain such as Migros, Emmi and Planted, students gain valuable insights into their strategies and day-to-day business," says Carmen Burri, who organizes the Food Tech Summer School. Building on this inspiration, they develop solutions in interdisciplinary teams and present them to a jury of experts.

Wide Range of Topics

Interested students can choose from three summer schools on the topics of FoodTech, HealthTech and CirculaTech. The HealthTech Summer School focuses on the development of innovative digital healthcare and medical device solutions, while the Cirular Tech Summer School focuses on circular business models in the real estate and construction sector. The two to two-and-a-half week programs of the Summer Schools 2024 take place between 8 and 31 July and lead to 6 ECTS credits. Registration is possible until March 1.
