Customer – Jacobs Foundation
The Jacobs Foundation bestowed its Research Prize and Best Practice Award in the venerable auditorium of the University of Zurich. 300 guests from science, business, and politics were invited. Former President of the Swiss Federation, Doris Leuthard, took over patronage for the presentation organized by eventagentur.ch.
The Jacobs Foundation award presentation was the first event of this type allowed by the University of Zurich in the auditorium – the place where Winston Churchill once gave his famous Zurich speech.
With 1.2 million euros in prize money, the Jacobs Foundation awards are the most endowed awards in Switzerland. They honor outstanding performance in child and youth developments.
The film director Paul Riniker filmed portraits of the winners. The screening of the winner films lent the presentation an extra level of quality. Following this, guests got some culinary pampering at the reception with a gala dinner in the university’s atrium.
