Where disciplines meet
The Rigi-Workshop was set up by the platform biology to promote interdisciplinary exchange between young scientists. The thema of this three-day workshop changes every year, but it has to be interdisciplinary and including biology. A maximum of 40 doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers from all Switzerland can participate. The platform Biology organises the Rigi workshops in collaboration with active researchers, which have submitted an appropriate subject and applied.
