The program offers 20 young people the opportunity to immerse themselves in the world of life science, technology and research as part of the "summer camp" and they will experience how this, in combination with entrepreneurship, impacts human health.

The camp takes place from 17 – 26 July 2024 in Zurich and is free of charge. The participants will design and implement experiments themselves and thus learn the principles and techniques involved in working in laboratories to develop innovative therapies. They gain unique insights into state-of-the-art research labs and promising projects and start-ups. In cooperation and in informal exchange with researchers, company founders and others, they share and discuss their ideas and views, expand their knowledge, and build a network of like-minded people. The summer camp is just the beginning! Upon successful completion of the camp, participants will gain access to inspiring community activities. 

The application deadline is the 14 April 2024.
