Fostering Knowledge Transfer

Empa-Akademie is a platform for knowledge transfer and exchange, and our marketing and communication experts work closely together with Empa researchers to consolidate academia-industry collaborations and to boost impactful exchanges and dialog with the public at large.

Building bridges between stakeholders is the team's main task: we support researchers with communication and event management. Furthermore, we represent the Empa at selected activities and various partnerships.

Our collaboration leads to dynamic exchanges: in 2022 we reached over 4'000 people with more than 60 events and other communication activities.
