Innovation is crucial to Switzerland’s prosperity, with a zest for science and entrepreneurship playing a key role. It’s only when research results or good ideas find their way into the market that new jobs are created, or solutions are developed for social and technological progress.

UBS has a long tradition of cooperation with research, targeted promotion of training and further education, and support for entrepreneurship in Switzerland.

That’s why we are proud to partner with EPFL to organize Investor Day.
