InnoThursday - Bring your ideas

Although Innovation is great, alone, it doesn’t mean anything.

To Innovate means to make changes in something established, especially by introducing new methods or ideas, takes courage and brains! Think of this: If Howard Schultz hadn’t been to Italy and if we would not have had the bravery to solicitate his employer to finance his upscale espresso cafes, the largest Coffeehouse chain in the world wouldn’t have existed: Starbucks.

On October, 17th we would like to reunite, around Pizza&Beers, our longtime members and welcome new commers to the club. We will take the evening to discuss ideas or projects you would like to see come alive. Because our members originate from a large spectrum of fields and faculties, and thanks to our diverse culture and core, you will certainly find the ideal team to make your “dream event” come true!

So, join us as we meet for our InnoThursday. Bring your ideas, your friends and let’s be creative! We will hack at ongoing events and plan future projects, all centered around innovation. If you want to be part of an inspiring group and meet amazing people, definitely consider coming this Thursday.

This meeting will take place at the Innovation Lab in the HEG-FR/HSW-FR at 6:00 PM

Of course Pizza&Beers awaits you!!!

In space with Nasa Astronaut Jeffrey A. Hoffman

An astronaut will be landing in Fribourg - with Jeffrey A. Hoffman

In 2020, NASA, the US space agency, will start preparations for sending humans to Mars ! To demonstrate the challenges of working in the void of space and present new perspectives on problem solving, we invited former NASA astronaut Prof. Jeffrey A. Hoffman for an unforgettable evening.

After receiving a PhD from Harvard University, he enrolled in NASA’s Shuttle program in 1979 and has since flown five Space Shuttle missions including the first repair mission to the Hubble telescope. He has also worked on many satellite assembly missions and has helped design elements of the International Space Station (ISS).

Prof. Hoffman’s talk will be preceded by an introduction from a student team from the HEIA-FR & HEPIA taking part in REXUS, a European program for university students to carry out scientific experiments on rockets and balloons.

In the foyer, the Regional Development Association of Lake Murten (SEM) will introduce you to the beginnings of Swiss aviation.

The conference will be followed by an aperitif.

All ticket proceeds will be donated to a non-profit organization in Fribourg.

This event is in collaboration with the US Embassy in Bern
