- 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.

Rigi Workshop 2019: Editing the code of human life – biological, ethical and legal perspectives

The workshop aims to bring together researchers from different disciplines to learn from each other and to understand the different challenges and opportunities associated with human genome editing.
