About the Innovation Days

Thank you to all of our participants for an amazing event! At the Innovation Days, we brought together companies, designers, engineers and entrepreneurial students to turn ideas into prototypes within 48 hours. Our challenges addressed shifts in regional competitiveness, ever-changing consumer trends for beverages, improvements in waste management for households and transformations in the automotive industry. Join our community to keep up to date on the outcomes of the Rheintal events and updates on other events.
