Prix Schläfli 2020 for the best four PhDs in science

The orbits of dwarf galaxies, forces in materials such as Teflon, tracing history through pollen, a new protective layer at root tips – these are the topics for which the Swiss Academy of Sciences (SCNAT) has awarded the Prix Schläfli 2020 to the four most important insights gained by young researchers at Swiss universities. Alice Berhin (Biology), Oliver Müller (Astronomy), Robert Pollice (Chemistry) and Fabian Rey (Geosciences) receive the prize for the findings arrived at in their dissertations.

Hivers trop doux : quelles conséquences pour les arbres ?

Une fois de plus, le réveil a sonné trop tôt pour le printemps cette année. Et le risque de gel tardif reste bien réel. Des chercheurs de l’Institut fédéral de recherches sur la forêt, la neige et le paysage WSL et de l’Université de Neuchâtel étudient les conséquences des températures hivernales trop clémentes sur la végétation en quantifiant expérimentalement les besoins en froid des arbres.

On a beautiful spring day such at ETH Hönggerberg, we sit outside at the café to talk. Rebekka Wild seems very relaxed, as if she had nothing more important to do than enjoy the sun. However, appearances are deceptive: she works pretty much 150 per cent of a normal working day, reads specialist literature in the evenings - and yes, sometimes even a book.
