• feminno initiative starts in September 2017
The Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center (PSC) has been awarded funding for a new mentoring program targeted to female scientists at all levels, from PhD to postdoctoral and group leader level. The project aims to support early-stage female scientists in their decision making for a university or industry-related research and career development. Funding is provided by the Federal Office for Gender Equality.
• Participate in the PSC citizen science project "Wo Samen fallen"
If a piece of uncovered ground is left to itself, plants begin to sprout even in the busiest of city streets. The city air carries seeds that land somewhere, germinate, and become a new plant.
The PSC citizen science project "Where Seeds Fall" will examine the survival chances of urban plant populations and their genetic diversity. You can be a Citizen Scientist too!
The goal is to document which plants are growing spontaneously in the city of Zurich and how they are influenced by the surrounding biodiversity. The more flowers in the vicinity, the more flowers reach your own garden.
