During the final study excursion, students of the 26th generation visited two countries: Switzerland, which is the world’s most-innovative country according to the 2019 edition of the Global Innovation Index and Principality of Liechtenstein.

The first day of the study tour began in Liechtenstein, a tiny, double landlocked country in the middle of Europe, where students had a chance to get acquainted with innovation and recruitment process at Hilti AG, one of the biggest multinational companies in the country. Later on during that day, 26th generation also paid a visit to the University of Liechtenstein and Bendura Bank. The following days were spent in Zurich, visiting Swiss corporate union Economiesuisse, ETH Zurich, where Albert Einstein himself once studied and taught; as well as such renowned companies as FIFA and Google. Students also got a chance to attend the presentation dedicated to innovation process as well as participate in a campus tour at Novartis HQ in Basel, after which they headed for an excursion to the capital of Switzerland – the city of bears, Bern.

The second part of the trip was devoted to the secrets of food sector, as our crew was hosted by Nestle HQ in Vevey, Switzerland and mineral water company EVIAN in France. Additionally, a visit to Alimentarium museum was organized to give students an opportunity to relax, have fun and enjoy the sceneries surrounding Lake Geneva.

PMI Research Center, Orascom – Andermatt Swiss Alps AG and CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research were also amid the places visited during 9 day trip. The latter is of utmost interest, as the students there were privileged to go 100 meters below the earth surface and observe the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator.

The very last days before the bus took its way back to Ljubljana, went by more relaxed, highlighted by free time students enjoyed in lively and picturesque Lausanne and visits to cheesy factory La Maison Du Gruyere as well as chocolate factory Maison Cailler.
