Cafe Scientifique
Our Cafés Scientifiques take place once a month on a Monday evening in the Coworking Lounge Tessinerplatz in Zurich. They offer interested people the opportunity to be inspired by exciting topics from science and research in a relaxed and uncomplicated atmosphere. After a short presentation by an invited guest from UZH or ETH, there is an open discussion with the audience.

Our first Café in 2024 will take place on Monday, 15 January 2024 at 19:00. Prof Jaboury Ghazoul, ETH Zurich, will speak on the topic "How much biodiversity do we need?". Register here and take part in the discourse.

Early Career Fellowships
With the Early Career Fellowship Programme, the Collegium Helveticum aims to support particularly promising scientists and artists at a crucial stage in their careers. The programme promotes work that crosses disciplinary boundaries in an unconventional way. Small interdisciplinary teams of up to three people are also invited to apply with a joint project. Projects carried out at the Collegium can be both relevant and original, ranging from applied science to blue-sky science, and from visual arts to artistic research. However, there are expressly no restrictions on the disciplines that can apply.

The application deadline is 15 February 2024 and the scholarship starts on 1 September 2024. You can find more information on the website.
