Exploring Tomorrow’s Challenges

stu­dent think tank and net­work – at the largest Swiss uni­ver­si­ties

Who we are

The NEO Net­work («NEO» for short) is a stu­dent think tank and net­work ded­i­cated to ex­plore and to ad­dress tomorrow‘s chal­lenges with the lead­ing in­dus­try ex­perts, sci­en­tists and en­tre­pre­neurs at the largest Swiss uni­ver­si­ties.

To power these en­deav­ors, we are a de­lib­er­ately rich and di­verse stu­dent com­mu­nity of both men and women from every sci­en­tific dis­ci­pline – all con­nected by a shared op­ti­mism to­wards sci­ence and tech­nol­ogy and a com­mon ded­i­ca­tion to ad­vance the sta­tus quo in or­der to shape our com­mu­ni­ties for the bet­ter.

Stu­dents may join our net­work, pro­fes­sional part­ners may col­lab­o­rate with us.

NEO Activity Loop

NEO (from «néos», an­cient greek) is based on three pil­lars: NEO Keynotes, NEO Net­work and NEO Labs. We con­nect and in­ter­act through our net­work, ex­plore and un­der­stand in our keynotes and cre­ate and im­pact at our labs.

Our ac­tiv­i­ties live from a con­stant ex­change with the lead­ing ex­perts from in­dus­try and acad­e­mia.

«At NEO, we connect, explore and impact together.»

NEO Keynotes

«pro­fes­sion­als to stu­dents»

The new in­dus­trial rev­o­lu­tion awaits us with an over­whelm­ing breadth of tech­no­log­i­cal break­throughs from a va­ri­ety of fields. We ex­plore the fu­ture chal­lenges brought about by these tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances with the lead­ing in­dus­try ex­perts, sci­en­tists and en­tre­pre­neurs in our keynote events at the largest Swiss uni­ver­si­ties.

NEO Labs

«stu­dents to pro­fes­sion­als»

We in­vite the mem­bers of our net­work once every se­mes­ter to ad­dress one par­tic­u­lar chal­lenge. Con­fronted with real-world chal­lenges that pro­fes­sion­als face, mem­bers of our net­work se­lect them­selves into a cross-disciplinary think tank, to break with tra­di­tional norms and come up with new ideas and ap­proaches at our labs.

Be a head at our labs.
