Swissnex Connect Lunches

Connecting the dots between Swiss fellows in the Bay Area and Swissnex in San Francisco.

Connect Lunches in the Bay Area

Are you a researcher, student, or Professor in the Bay Area? Join us during one of our connect Lunches.

Swissnex in San Francisco regularly invites Bay Area fellows to our Connect Lunches, which foster connections and collaboration between Swissnex in San Francisco and the Bay Area academic ecosystem. The lunches are open to students, researchers, and professors alike, strengthening Swiss bonds in the Bay Area.

The Swissnex Connect Lunches are a relaxing moment to connect with the incredible academic ecosystem in the Bay Area engaged in promoting Swiss Innovation.
