In Vivo showered with awards

Just over one year after it was first published, the magazine from Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV) dedicated to medical innovation in French-speaking Switzerland’s Health Valley has won two national awards and a prestigious European competition.

Earning a SUVA Media award for its fold-out In Extenso on jogging, the “Special Jury Prize” for best magazine in the Swiss competition for corporate communication and the award for best external publication at the European Excellence Awards, In Vivo has enjoyed sweeping success in these last months of 2014, marking the release of its fourth issue.

This informative magazine, intended for anyone curious about innovation in the health sector, is the fruit of the collaboration between the CHUV and the media agency LargeNetwork in Geneva. Its content is designed by Communication Department staff who represent the CHUV’s services and departments and who aim to promote their respective fields.

In Vivo is distributed free of charge within the CHUV and a vast network including the Swissnex counsellor locations. A two-year subscription is also available, for 20 Swiss francs to cover shipping costs, by filling in the online form on the magazine’s website (
