The PSC plays a unique role in linking researchers from our consortium universities with society. We organize special events where cutting-edge research comes to life.
Conferences, Symposia, Public Round Tables and Dialog Grün
The PSC hosts several events each year in which academics, agency representatives, and partners from industry and NGOs engage on the challenges facing society.
Plant science at school
Our education specialists develop curriculum and teaching exercises related to research happening at ETH Zurich, University of Basel, and University of Zurich. These activities are accredited and offered as continuing education opportunities for Swiss secondary school teachers though our partners at the Life Science Learning Center (Zurich), l'Eprouvette (Lausanne) and BiOutils (Geneva). The program allows teachers and university scientists to enter into productive dialog on hands-on learning for youth.
