Overview and costs of booths and exhibition infrastructure


CHF 850.-, excl. VAT
The presentation topic can be chosen freely by the company. Examples of topics would be insights into selected company projects, successful leap from ETH into the professional world or what entry and development opportunities do exist. Duration of the lecture: 45 minutes, on the premises of ETH Zurich (lecture halls and seminar rooms).
Since students do not have to register in advance for the Polylectures, the number of participants can vary greatly and therefore cannot be estimated in advance.
Participation in the Polyvortrag 2021 is only available with simultaneous participation in the Polymesse 2021.
Due to organizational and logistical reasons, we can only offer a limited number of polylectures. We reserve the right to make a selection according to the number of applications received.
Due to the current situation, it cannot be guaranteed that Polylectures can be held (independently of the Polymesse).
