Three female and four male scientists receive an award
The first online edition of the conference "Graubünden forscht 2020" successfully brought together fifty scientists who gave presentations on their work in Graubünden. They adapted well to the new format of the video conference, although the majority presented their research to a larger audience for the first time in this way. As in previous years, the aim for the young researchers was to make their projects clear and understandable to an audience outside their field of research.
Those who were best able to captivate the audience were each awarded a prize of 500 Swiss francs. The Graduate School Graubünden awarded three scientists in the categories of medical and life sciences, natural sciences and humanities.
Flurina Camenisch (Institute for Cultural Research Graubünden) received the prize in the category humanities. In the medical and life sciences, Pattraporn Satitsuksanoa (Swiss Institute for Allergy and Asthma Research SIAF, Davos), Stijn Rotman and Gregor Miklosic (both AO Research Institute, Davos) convinced with their presentations. The awards in the natural sciences went to Safiye Jafari (CSEM Center Landquart), Ursin Solèr (University of Applied Sciences Graubünden) and Gabriele Consoli (EAWAG).
