Portrait


The Swiss Society for Quaternary Research CH-QUAT is open for all who are interested in Quaternary Research. CH-QUAT follows in the footsteps of the Swiss Commission on Quaternary Research (SKQ), which represented Quaternary scientists of Switzerland during the years 1987-2009.

The mission of CH-QUAT is to provide a platform for communication and knowledge exchange between researchers who work with Quaternary topics. The leading theme of our activities is Mankind-Environment-Climate. Our society is dedicated to establishing interdisciplinary research networks within Switzerland and to extending our connections with organizations abroad. In collaboration with the Swiss Academy of Sciences (scnat) a dialog between science, practice and the society is reinforced. One of the most important tasks of our society is to support the new generations of scientists dedicated to the Quaternary.

Activities:

  • Annual meetings
  • Multi-day excursions
  • Establishing working groups for specific research themes
  • Discussing and establishing recommendations for ethical scientific conduct
  • Planning of courses for continued education in specific areas of Quaternary research
  • Organization of talks on Quaternary topics for the public
  • Awarding of travel stipends for young researchers to participate in international conferences and for fieldwork
