Science is also bearing fruit in the periphery. Around sixty young scientists from Graubünden’s research institutes and universities will once again prove this in their lectures and poster presentations on 19 and 20 September 2018 at the Davos Congress Centre. What is new in allergy research? What methods of modern bone healing are currently being developed at the AO Research Institute? What influence does solar radiation have on the earth’s climate? Why is computer science education important for children? What is the potential of nanomaterials? How can avalanche predictions be improved? For the sixth time, the Graduate School Graubünden is organising the congress «Graubünden forscht – The Young Researchers Convention» in Davos to provide answers to questions of this kind and to make the high-quality research in the canton visible. The best works receive prize money. The award ceremony for those researchers who have recently completed their doctoral thesis in collaboration with a research institution in Graubünden will take place during the conference dinner.
The congress will be rounded off by three «Martin Allgöwer Lectures»: The departing director of the Physical-Meteorological Observatory, Werner Schmutz, will shed light on the effects of solar radiation on the Earth’s climate. Albert Weichselbraun, Professor at the HTW Chur, will discuss the possibilities and challenges of artificial intelligence. The historian Florian Hitz will throw a spotlight on important events in the history of Graubünden.

The event is open to the public. Programme and registration: https://graduateschool.ch/grforscht-2018
