Innovation Centre & Open Geneva: a strong collaboration!

The Open Geneva story started a few years ago with our partner HUG - Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève, more specifically the HUG Innovation Centre, and our collaboration has continued to strengthen!

The HUG have been actively supporting the preparation of the Open Geneva innovation festival since 2016 and the project manager of the HUG Innovation Centre joined the Open Geneva committee in 2018 in a personal capacity.

The State of Geneva, our best partner!

Thank you to theState of Geneva for its trust and its major support to the Greater Geneva Innovation Festival!

For several years, the Directorate General for Economic Development, Research and Innovation (DG DERI) has supported and encouraged Open Geneva in its mission to promote open innovation in the Greater Geneva area.

City of Geneva Open Geneva 2020

The City of Geneva renews its confidence in us

Thank you to the City of Geneva for its renewed confidence in the 2020 edition of the innovation festival!

Since last year, the City of Geneva and the G'innove programme have actively supported the Open Geneva association in the digital development of its platform: the sparkboard. Thanks to this trust, Open Geneva makes this platform available free of charge to all hackathon organisers to facilitate the organisation of innovation events.

UNIGE Open Geneva 2020

The University of Geneva, where it all began...

Thank you to theUniversity of Geneva for its trust and unfailing support since the beginning of the Open Geneva adventure!

The Open Geneva story simply would not exist without the support of the University of Geneva. We like to say that Open Geneva is a spin-off of the UNIGE! Like the University of Geneva, Open Geneva fulfils this service to the City by instilling this dynamic of open innovation in the Greater Geneva.

On a day-to-day basis, the UNIGE shows its support for the Open Geneva association by making key resources available to it. For example, the President and the Secretary of the association, two key members of the Open Geneva committee, are employees of the University of Geneva.

For the 2020 edition, the University of Geneva wanted to get even more involved by hosting the launch party of the festival on Thursday 19 March.

Thank you to our partner MCI Group for joining the Open Geneva adventure with such enthusiasm! Since last year, many collaborative projects have been developed between Open Geneva and MCI. Initially a partner of the Innovation Festival in 2019, MCI has decided to make a more lasting commitment by becoming a Gold Partner of Open Geneva 2020! A very promising relationship is born!

PMGF open geneva 2020

PMGF strengthens its support for Open Geneva

The collaboration with the French Genevan Metropolitan Cluster has been growing steadily for the past two years, as together we wish to encourage open innovation on both sides of the French-Swiss border. It is therefore quite natural that the French Genevan Metropolitan Cluster has become a partner of the 2020 Innovation Festival!
