Context

The GSGS addresses the demand of really user-centered products by falling within the needs of the industrial fabric and the innovation produced by the applied research. This annual event backs the fundamental relation between pragmatic academy and economy, at a regional scale for short and dynamic projects as well as at a national or global scale to set up long-term synergies.

Concept of industrial gamification

The main idea consists in answering the real needs of the user by making him responsible for the professional process he masters while enhancing his efforts and his successes but also backing him up in his issues.

So, the GSGS presents tangible ideas that underline the real potential of a ludic approach to take up technical and serious challenges. This event, which brings together lots of different and varied fields while being really focused on the user’s needs, is a bridge between universities and firms. The audience will also be asked to take an active part in seminars, workshops, exchange places, round tables and social events along with 60 talks and demos. Now, thanks to our rich experience with more than 100 national actors – mainly industries and applied research and development institutes -, we open our doors to the world to both enrich ourselves with the universal diversity and to highlight Swiss expertise.
