Written by Giorgia Guzman, Tijana Kitanovic & Chiara Lisetto

Our adventure today began with a trip to Roche Diagnostics, which marked the start of an enlightening experience. Upon arrival, we were introduced to the intricacies of the Australian healthcare sector, with a special focus on the pivotal role of diagnostics, through an engaging presentation and comprehensive tour. The knowledge shared on analytics and diagnostics, covering critical areas such as cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, women’s health, oncology, and infectious diseases, was invaluable. The insights gained from this visit provided a profound understanding of the challenges and advancements within these vital health domains.

The journey continued as we visited Cochlear, immersing ourselves in the innovative world of implantable hearing solutions. During another informative tour and presentation, we were introduced to the latest developments in hearing technology. The showcased innovation was truly remarkable, demonstrating the progress being made in improving the quality of life for those with hearing impairments.

Our exploration then took us to the iconic shores of Bondi Beach, where we enjoyed our lunch break. The picturesque beauty of the beach provided an ideal setting for relaxation. Some of us enjoyed a stroll along the shoreline, while others indulged in refreshing drinks, all against the stunning backdrop of Bondi. Despite the weather preventing a dip in the ocean, the experience remained thoroughly enjoyable.

After lunch, we went to Bellevue Hill for an exclusive dinner with the Consul General of Switzerland. On the way, we made a scenic detour to Gap Lookout National Park, where we enjoyed breathtaking views of the ocean and cliffs. After a brief but memorable walk, we continued to our final destination of the day.
The evening ended with a delightful dinner hosted by the Consul General of Switzerland, Rolf Frei. During the dinner, we had stimulating conversations that covered a broad range of topics. This dinner not only ended our day splendidly but also provided an opportunity to make meaningful connections and gain insights from a diplomatic perspective.

Looking back, it was an exciting day packed with new experiences and eye-opening insights. A big thank you goes out to everyone who welcomed us and took the time to show us around their interesting companies. Their hospitality and openness really made the day special for us.
