The Academia-Industry Training (AIT) aims to support scientists in transforming their high-level applied research into market application and discovering their entrepreneurial potential. By connecting scientists from top institutions in Switzerland and India/Brazil, the program promotes an international network and enables access to one of the most promising markets and intellectual capitals in applied research. swissnex India is co-organizing the Academia-Industry Training India together with our local partners, the Robert Bosch Center for Cyber Physical Systems (RBCCPS).

Participants
The AIT is open to 15 carefully selected, high-level applied researchers (Master, PhD and Postdoc level scientists from a Swiss institution with research track record) who want to transform their research into market innovations. Robert Bosch Center for Cyber Physical Systems is in charge of selecting Indian participants.
