The Digital Campus

The Digital Campus


“The Digital Campus” is an evolution of  the “Swiss Academia and the Social Media Landscape” program, which swissnex San Francisco led from 2011 through 2012.  The objective of this program is to continue to build upon the growing social media expertise of program participants and provide Swiss higher education with the latest knowledge and best practices on how to leverage new technologies for the benefits of their institutions and students.

We will provide all of the tools and support necessary for Swiss academia to fully embrace new technologies through three unique features:

Customized high-value services: Participants receive regular, in-depth reports about their institution’s activity on social media, admission to an annual symposium, the option to participate in study tours to the Silicon Valley, tailored training and consulting, and many other exclusive components.

Access to the higher education community in Switzerland: The participation of all 12 Swiss universities, the majority of the universities of applied sciences, and many federal research institutes has allowed us to build a community of higher education communicators that is unique in Switzerland.

A gateway to Silicon Valley: swissnex San Francisco’s proximity to the Silicon Valley, the birthplace of new technologies, puts us at the epicenter of cutting-edge innovations. This ability to identify future trends, together with our large and valuable network of contacts, allows us to deliver a top-notch program, tailored to the needs and challenges of Swiss academia.

If you’re a Swiss institution of higher education or research and want to participate in this program, please contact us.
