For a number of years, a trend away from science disciplines in the education of young people has become obvious. Additionally, young people consider the natural sciences as a domain with little future potential.

For this reason, the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) specifically strengthens the promotion of young scientists in science subject areas.

A Committee was established that serves as contact point for question on the STEM area (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).

  • Mentoring of maturity works”: secondary level / grammar schools (15-18 year old): More than 250 research groups across Switzerland open young people doors to their labs and make them available their competencies, infrastructure and measuring instruments for a maturity works. Thereby they make a significant contribution to sharpen the awareness for the importance of the natural sciences.
  • “Presentations at schools”: The SCNAT maintains a list with specialists in Biology, Chemistry, Geosciences, Informatics, Mathematics and Physics who give talks in their domain at secondary level II schools.

Kommission für Nachwuchsförderung

Young people’s interest in natural sciences is constantly decreasing while there is an increasing lack of qualified natural scientists in the professional world. As a reaction to this development, the Committee for the Promotion of Young Talents (Kommission Nachwuchsförderung) as part of the framework of the Swiss Academy of Natural Sciences (SCNAT) has put its focus on enkindling youth’s fascination for the fields of the natural sciences.
