Asimo Opens The Doors To New European Science Facility


ASIMO Opens the Doors to New European Science FacilityASIMO travelled to the lakeside city of Lausanne in Switzerland this week to attend the official opening of the SwissTech Convention Centre, a brand new collaboration hub for the European scientific community.

The state-of-the-art facility, located within the campus of one of Europe’s leading technology universities (EPFL), can accommodate up to 3,000 people and has been praised for its innovative architecture. This includes a solar photovoltaic facade composed of “Grätzel cells” and a completely modular design, enabling its amphitheatre to transform into a banquet hall in about 15 minutes.

ASIMO was invited to mark the public launch of the landmark centre and performed ten shows over the weekend in front of a combined audience of over 8,000.

ASIMO’s trip to Switzerland is its seventh appearance in the Alpine region in seven years.
