Taking place in Zurich in April this year, Swiss Polar Day is an opportunity for researchers to learn about current developments in international polar sciences, help define new priorities for Swiss polar research, and network with polar scientists.

On 4 April, the Swiss scientific community will come together at the ETH Zurich to listen to international keynote speakers active in the Arctic, Antarctic, and high-altitude regions. 


Following the Swiss Polar Institute’s Call for Ideas, Swiss Polar Day will also provide an opportunity for debate and to give input into the preparation of a roadmap on the Swiss Polar Institute’s future priorities.

This one-day conference is open to all active or aspiring members of the Swiss academic community interested or experienced in polar regions. Students, young scientists, and experienced researchers from all fields are warmly invited to network and contribute to the debate.

The event is free of charge, but online registration is mandatory by 15 March 2018.
