As part of the celebration activities of the Chemical Landmark 2019 that is awarded to the High Altitude Research Station Jungfraujoch, Switzerland's top site in environmental science, the Platform Chemistry of the SCNAT in collaboration with the SCS, the International Foundation High Altitude Research Stations Jungfraujoch & Gornergrat and the Swiss Crystallographic Society organizes this one-day symposium with national and international experts as lecturers and guests.

The Symposium addresses the Station’s international scientific role and also its remarkable historic background through the example of Max Perutz (Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1962) and his early research work on this high alpine Research Station.

Speakers:

  • Prof. Urs Baltensperger, PSI/ETH-Zürich, Switzerland
  • Dr. Lukas Emmenegger, Empa, Switzerland
  • Prof. John A. Pyle, University of Cambridge, UK
  • Prof. Christian George, University of Lyon, France

Top of Europe: ausgezeichnete Forschung auf 3450 Metern über Meer

In Zeiten, in denen sich viele Länder Europas abschotteten, eröffnete die Schweiz die international ausgerichtete Forschungsstation Jungfraujoch. Mehrere Nobelpreisträger haben dort geforscht. Die Station erhält 2019 gleich zwei Auszeichnungen als bedeutende historische Stätte der Naturwissenschaften. Die Europäische Physikalische Gesellschaft honoriert die Verdienste in der Physik und die Akademie der Naturwissenschaften Schweiz jene in der Chemie.
