Graduate School Graubünden

September 14, 2016 – September 15, 2016

The Graduate School Graubünden is organising the fifth conference “Graubünden forscht – Young Scientists Contest”.

What effect do clouds have on the earth’s climate? How can avalanches be predicted more precisely? Which training opportunities do children and youth have in peripheral alpine regions? How does the formation of new bone tissue work? Around sixty young scientists from the Grisons based research institutes and universities as well as from the neighboring South Tyrol will deliver answers to questions of this type in their oral and poster presentations at the Congress Centre Davos on September 14 and 15, 2016.

The public discussion on Thursday, September 15, 2016, 18:30 to 19:45, will address the importance of ethics in research. Using the example of current trends in medical research the experts will debate the ethical requirements and limitations related to those trends.

Many young scientists are working only temporarily at research institutes and universities in the Grisons. What do they expect for their future careers? Is a scientific career realistic? What alternatives are there? These issues will be discussed on Wednesday, September 14, 2016, 18:30 to 19:30.

As part of the conference dinner on Wednesday, September 14, 2016, the Graduate School Graubünden will honor those researchers, who have completed their dissertation at a member institution of Academia Raetica between 2014 and 2016.
