After the success of the “We Scientists 2035 Workshop Day” that took place in February at UNIL, we are organizing the first workshop of this kind here at EPFL to brainstorm as a community about the “Research Culture” we want for our future, and to plant the seeds for change today!Image: Hugo Vincent
Do you work in a scientific research institution? Are you frustrated with aspects of current research culture, such as the pressure to “publish or perish”, the reproducibility crisis, climbing the academic ladder and persistent gender biases? Do you want to shape the culture that you work in? Join us on the 7th of February, 2019 at the University of Lausanne for an afternoon of «We Scientists 2035 Workshops». Let’s make small changes today for a better research culture tomorrow!Image: SCNAT
One of the most fundamental and fascinating questions in science is why there is life on Earth. What makes our planet habitable and what is, for example, the role of plate tectonics in planetary habitability. Geoscientists not only play a crucial role in studying the evolution of planet Earth and the origins of life, but their studies can also contribute to maintaining our planet habitable and liveable for future generations.

OpenCon is a platform for the next generation to learn about Open Access, Open Education and Open Data, develop critical skills and catalyze action toward a more open system for sharing the world’s information – from scholarly and scientific research, to educational materials, to digital research data.Image: OpenCon Switzerland
The annual PDD has been re-invented and expanded in 2018 to focus on scientific collaboration and transitioning from postdoctoral fellowships into future careers. PDD is followed on September 15th by Innovation Day, which provides more opportunities for those seeking networks between academia, industry, and clinical medicine. Together, these two days form the first "Open Innovation in Life Sciences" conference.
