Help shape ESA's space science programme

What do you think are the most important questions that ESA's future science missions should tackle? Now is your chance to tell us. Günther Hasinger, ESA Director of Science, is inviting the public to share their views on the questions that Voyage 2050, ESA's space science programme for the 2035-2050 time frame, should address. This public consultation opened in March and will run until the end of June.

Expedition 2 Grad – eine virtuelle Reise in die Alpen der Zukunft

Wie sieht das Hochgebirge bei einer globalen Temperaturzunahme von 2 Grad in Zukunft aus? Unter der Leitung der Universität Freiburg und der Zürcher Hochschule der Künste haben Forschende eine virtuell begehbare Welt modelliert und in enger Zusammenarbeit mit dem Schweizerischen Nationalpark eine Ausstellung konzipiert. Diese ist bis im August in Zernez (GR) und von September bis Januar 2020 in Naters (VS) zu sehen.

The framework for a climate-neutral transport policy

The existing instruments of European and Swiss energy policy in the field of mobility are far from sufficient to achieve the climate objectives of the Paris Agreement. This is the conclusion of a new report by the European Academies Science Advisory Council (EASAC). The report focuses on road transport, which accounts for 72 percent of greenhouse gas emissions from transport in Europe, and recommends various measures.

The FCC provides science for almost a century

In spring 2020 the European particle physics community will decide on a new European Strategy highlighting the strategic long-term goals in this important field of fundamental research. In December 2018 Swiss scientists – organized by the Swiss Institute of Particle Physics / CHIPP – have formulated their input to the new European Strategy. Günther Dissertori – professor at ETH Zurich, member of the CHIPP Executive Board and incoming Scientific Delegate of Switzerland in the CERN Council – explains the main points of the Swiss strategic input.

Klimaszenarien CH2018: Die Schweiz erwärmt sich weiter

Die Schweiz wird trockener, heisser, schneeärmer und kämpft künftig mit heftigeren Niederschlägen – zu diesem Ergebnis kommen Klimaforschende von Meteo Schweiz und der ETH Zürich. Heute präsentierten sie die im Auftrag des Bundes erstellten Klimaszenarien CH2018. Sie bilden die Basis für die Anpassungsstrategie des Bundes an den Klimawandel.

Mobile phone sensors, fit for cutting-edge research

The large particle accelerator LHC at CERN in Geneva enables scientists to get precious clues to understand the nature of matter in the next two decades of data taking. The power and performance of this huge research apparatus needs to be constantly improved for this task. A silicon sensor, which the junior researcher Claudia Merlassino is currently testing at the University of Bern, is planned to be used from 2025 in a large LHC experiment: ATLAS.

Future Earth and Convention on Biological Diversity are partners

Future Earth and the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) agreed to strengthen their collaboration around a number of key areas. The two organisations signed a new agreement at the 21st meeting of the Subsidiary Body on Scientific, Technical, and Technological Advice (SBSTTA), in December in Montreal. The signing of a memorandum of understanding marks an important commitment by both organisations to jointly strive to achieve the Aichi biodiversity targets and the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
