Meet the participants of the AIT 2022-2023

These are the Brazilian and Swiss sciencepreneurs participating in the 9th cycle of the Academia-Industry Training (AIT). Learn more about them and their innovative projects!

The AIT aims to connect promising researchers-entrepreneurs with the innovation and startup ecosystem to develop their high-level research’s market application. International researchers also get the chance to collaborate and share best practices, understand new markets, discover new market applications, and create synergies.

The AIT is an initiative by Swissnex in Brazil and the Leading House for the Latin American Region (University of St.Gallen). It consists of two phases: a training camp in Brazil, connecting Brazilian sciencepreneurs with their Swiss peers on Brazilian ground, and a second training camp in Switzerland.

The program results from the collaboration between Swissnex in Brazil, the University of St.Gallen (HSG), the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq), and the Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (MCTI).
