Databooster Matchmaking Event

The NTN Innovation Booster – Databooster powered by Innosuisse is a community with an open innovation culture, in which key players around data-based value creation work together to develop innovation ideas and explore new business areas and approaches. The Databooster aims to bring together actors of all segments to ideate and develop radical solutions.

In doing so, they give Swiss companies a decisive competitive advantage and create important added value for the Swiss economy and society.

We would very much like to draw your attention to the following event and invite you to participate in the idea submission. 

This event is an opportunity for every one of you: who has a cool project idea and is in need of a partner and/or even a feedback on the idea and also persons who don’t actually share an idea there but are interested in listening to them. This is meant for researchers, startups, SMEs as well as corporations. There are ideas shared and there might be just one that strikes you as the thing to do! 

We invite submissions of ideas related to all aspects of data-based value creation. We especially want to solicit ideas in these focus topics, namely: Industry 4.0, Language-based Human-Machine Interaction, Smart Services and Spatial Data Analytics.

Out of all well-defined presented ideas a jury will award the best 3 innovation teams for funding by 10-20 kCHF to further shape or test your idea.

The Databooster Matchmaking event will take place on the December 2, 2021, 16:00 – 18:00, followed by a networking apéro from 18:00 – 19:00 at Fernfachhochschule Schweiz in Zurich (Gleisarena at Zollstrasse 17)

Expert Group Meeting – Smart Maintenance

Maik Hadorn, Roche Diagnostics

Addressing customer needs in a smart way – an end-to-end case study for Condition-Based Maintenance of Laboratory Equipment

Ensuring reliability while minimizing downtime of laboratory analyzers is not just a convenience – it is critical to maximizing a lab’s success and upholding the standard of patient care to which labs aspire. Joining forces with Roche Service Representatives allowed the Roche data science team to empirically test and refine algorithms that prevent replacing a crucial part of the instrument when it is not broken. With this unnecessary instrument downtime is minimized because troubleshooting is eased while reliability is ensured. A staggered roll-out of the algorithm will not only allow the users to provide continuous feedback but will also allow for customized communication, training, and organizational change management creating enthusiasm and buy-in of the people.


14:30 Introduction round
14:45 Talk: Condition Based Maintenance of Laboratory Equipment by Maik Hadorn, Roche Diagnostics
15:30 Apéro (subject to COVID restrictions)

The meeting will take place at the following location: ZHAW, Lagerstrasse 41, Zurich, building ZL, room E0.11

Please register to the meeting using the form below. For questions you are welcome to contact us directly at lilach.gorenhuber@zhaw.ch or palm@zhaw.ch.

Looking forward to meeting you,

Sichere Technikkommunikation trotz Maschineller Übersetzung?

Einsprachig war gestern! Mittlerweile bedeutet Technikkommunikation auch, in mehreren Sprachen technische Inhalte zu kommunizieren. Die Übersetzung von Bedienungsanleitungen kostet bekanntlich viel Zeit, verursacht hohe Kosten und erfordert viel Abstimmungsbedarf. Zum Glück gibt es Translate & Co! Maschinelle Übersetzung macht das Ganze einfacher, schneller, günstiger – oder doch nicht?

In diesem Event setzen wir uns mit der Frage auseinander, wie maschinelle Übersetzung in der Technikkommunikation eingesetzt werden kann, und beleuchten gemeinsam Chancen und Risiken. Zudem geben wir einen Einblick, wie anwendungsorientierte Projekte in diesem Bereich mithilfe von Innosuisse als Kooperation von Industrie und Forschung umgesetzt werden können.

Weitere Informationen sowie die Anmeldung finden Sie HIER: LinkedIn Seite der ZHAW Angewandte Linguistik.

Service Lunch: “Essen, Lernen, Netzwerken”

Organized by the Smart Services Expert Group.
