Following the highly successful initiative launched by the GEM (Groupement des Entreprises Multinationales) in Geneva last year, multinationals in the Canton of Vaud are offering the general public access to the world of multinationals. A rare opportunity.
5 unique events will take place between 29 September and 7 October 2015, giving participants the opportunity to discover key players. There will be 5 roundtables on key themes for the region. These events will take place on the premises of the respective organisations, with the opportunity to take guided tours of their installations. Given the importance of multinationals in our region, the Vaud cantonal government will be present with at least one of the state councilors at each event. EPFL and the HES will also be there.
At each event, the roundtable will debate current issues with key players from industry, academia and politics looking at how the region is developing and the challenges of remaining competitive.
