In a strategic collaboration aimed at furthering the practical and theoretical understanding of Generative AI, Effixis and the Generative Learning Center (GLC) at HES-SO Valais-Wallis have today announced a formal partnership. The partnership is aimed at leveraging their respective strengths to support companies and public organizations through high-impact workshops, comprehensive services, and cutting-edge research.
Effixis, a frontrunner in Generative AI consulting, has a proven track record of successful implementation of Large Language Models projects, having executed over 20 successful integrations in the domain. The GLC at HES-SO Valais-Wallis, meanwhile, offers a tier-one scientific knowledge of AI technology and a leading position in the scientific community.
This isn’t the first collaboration between the two organizations.

The project was led by Andrei Kucharavy, the GLC’s scientific lead and distinguished researcher in the field.
The partnership will now take this successful relationship a step further, offering a suite of awareness and capability workshops designed for teams looking to develop a fundamental understanding of Generative AI, their reliable and responsible usage as well as scientific and technical advisory for projects.
Remi Sabonnadiere, CEO of Effixis, spoke enthusiastically about the partnership: “The HES-SO is the ideal partner for this, combining exceptional scientific capabilities with a pragmatic approach. We are now eager to bring this synergy into delivering exceptional workshops, services, and resources to help businesses and organizations leverage the power of Generative AI.”
