Swiss-Korean Innovation Week

Join us at Swiss Hanok, the Embassy of Switzerland in the Republic of Korea

An old Korean proverb – 우물 안의 개구리 or “frog in a well” – is used to describe someone who walks through life with their head in the sand when it comes to all the diversity present in the world around them. The Swiss-Korean Innovation Week 2022 aims to establish a dialogue about the current status and identify some instruments to “rise out of the well” and create a more diverse, inclusive and innovative society.
