Gute Rahmenbedingungen für Bildung, Forschung und Innovation erhalten

Der Wissens-, Forschungs- und Innovationsplatz Schweiz ist dank europäischer und internationaler Vernetzung und Kooperation weltweit führend. Das europäische Forschungsrahmenprogramm gibt Schweizer Forschenden seit 30 Jahren nicht nur Zugang zu Fördermitteln, sondern auch die Möglichkeit, sich mit den besten Forschenden zu messen. Ein Ja zur Kündigungsinitiative würde die Beschäftigung der klügsten Köpfe aus Europa einschränken und das Ende des Forschungsabkommens mit der EU bedeuten, was für den Wissenschaftsstandort Schweiz gravierende Folgen hätte. Deshalb setzen sich die Akademien der Wissenschaften Schweiz für gute Rahmenbedingungen ein und warnen vor den gravierenden negativen Folgen der Volksinitiative «Für eine massvolle Zuwanderung» («Kündigungsinitiative»), die den Wissenschaftsplatz Schweiz langandauernd schädigen würde.

Cluster hire of 12 Postdocs to work on the new Blue-Green Biodiversity (BGB2020) research initiative of Eawag and WSL

The loss of biodiversity is, next to climate change, one of the biggest challenges humanity is facing. Research and action to reverse and mitigate the loss of biodiversity and associated ecosystem functions and services are thus crucially needed. In order to tackle this scientifically and societally urgent topic, the ETH Board has funded a research program on Blue-Green Biodiversity (BGB). Its goal is to strengthen interdisciplinary biodiversity research of WSL and Eawag in order to find answers to urgent social challenges of species loss as quickly as possible.
