On Wednesday, June 14, 2023, the 27th Symposium on Privacy and Security will be held at Pädagogische Hochschule (PHZH) in Zurich. Experts present and discuss new developments in data privacy and information security. Topics include contextual integrity, the new federal data protection law, challenges on the path to digitized government, and increasing threats to cybersecurity. Participation is free of charge for employees of public bodies in the canton of Zurich – as a further training offer from the data protection officers.
The Symposium on Privacy and Security is an annual fixture for anyone interested in privacy and security issues.
This year’s Swiss Mechatronics Day focuses on the contribution of mechatronics in medical technology. Medical technology is a constantly evolving field in which new and innovative technologies are increasingly being used.
One development is the increasing use of mechatronic systems, which are now used in many medical technology applications. In the process, intelligent and assistive systems are created that can be used in the hospital environment, in laboratories and also on patients. For the future of medical technology, mechatronics is an extremely important component that makes previously unthinkable things possible for doctors and patients and makes life easier. We will present concrete examples of this in the lectures and the exhibition at Technopark in Zurich.
The use of artificial intelligence has become an integral part of various research and innovation projects in science, business and government. In order to address multifaceted issues with targeted added value, the Canton of Zurich is taking a step ahead. Its Innovation Sandbox is a test environment for the implementation of AI projects. Along concrete projects, it offers an effective platform for creating responsible innovation. And in this INNOtalk, we will learn firsthand how this happens.
Start-ups, established technology companies as well as research institutes work closely with the public administration in the Sandbox. Selected AI projects receive effective support in this, such as through the provision of regulatory know-how in the area of data protection or the provision of data sources from the cantonal ecosystem. AI projects are systematically evaluated and result in insights on autonomous driving, machine translation in a government context, or automation in various forms. All results are shared publicly in each case to promote the responsible use of AI and to trigger mutual learning processes. An innovation approach par excellence.
In a special edition of the INNOtalk event series, the SwissICT Innovation Specialist Group would like to discuss relevant aspects of the topic of artificial intelligence in an interactive manner and is looking forward to the participation of expert Raphael von Thiessen and, of course, all the guests present. The choice of an inspiring venue along with a pleasant atmosphere and plenty of opportunity for valuable networking make this event unique.

Customer or patient journey, website relaunch, patient portals, digital assignments, employer branding – the topics surrounding marketing and communication are diverse and wide-ranging, even in the hospital environment. What often starts with “just” the idea of relaunching the hospital website often ends with a new communication strategy. At this event, we will show you possible challenges and opportunities that arise, for example, through a revision of your own website.
Startups and scaleups can benefit tremendously from external members of the Board of Directors or Advisory Board – and many experienced individuals are eager to work for startups and scaleups.
