Rooted in the Future

The fifth edition of the Swiss-US Energy Innovation Days (SUEID) will take place in the French-speaking part of Switzerland, the “Romandie” from August 19–22, 2018.

The SUEID is an annual, invitation-only event designed to bring together professionals from economy, government and academics from the U.S. and Switzerland, to foster collaboration and exchange, to showcase promising energy innovations, and to accelerate their market integration.

The SUEID are an initiative launched in 2014 by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) and swissnex Boston, which aims at connecting Switzerland and North America through education, innovation, and science. In each of the previous editions of the SUEID, the SFOE has collaborated with various partners as co-organizers.
