The Call for Papers (PDF) is out now.

The Graduate School Graubünden will hold the conference “Graubünden forscht – Young Scientists in Contest” at the Congress Centre Davos from September 14 to 15, 2016.

The conference provides a forum for young scientists to present their latest research to their academic peers and an expert jury. The Graduate School Graubünden invites all institutions of Academia Raetica as well as the research institutions from the neighboring regions South Tyrol and Tyrol. Researchers from non-member/non-partner institutions are also welcome, if they carry out research in or about the Grisons. The event promotes the scientific and personal exchange of young scientists across national borders and disciplines. The best oral and poster presentations will receive awards and prize money.

The Graduate School Graubünden is a key project of Academia Raetica. Its goals are to support young scientists in the region, to strengthen the network between the Grisons based research institutions and the Swiss universities, and to strengthen research and education in Graubünden.


The support program will include podium discussions, a workshop, and a visit to the research institutes in Davos. The Graduate School Graubünden will honor researchers who have recently received their doctorate in collaboration with an institution of Academia Raetica with an award ceremony. They will receive a certificate for academic excellence.
