Participation in events
Municipalities often request our participation in events in order to communicate the current state of knowledge, e.g. in the context of public information events on planned infrastructure projects or in the context of further training within authorities.
We also have a long history of involvement with schools. This involvement is primarily related to the TecDays of the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences, an educational campaign at secondary schools to get young people interested in technical training and careers.
