The members of the project "What can we learn from COVID-19 fake news about the spread of scientific misinformation in general?" are organising a workshop on 16 September at this year's ScienceComm'21 in Fribourg, where they will conduct a co-creation analysis of a Switzerland-wide survey on COVID-19 misinformation.
Following the Members' Assembly, the members elected Lucas Mueller as the new speaker of the Swiss Young Academy for the year 2021/2022. We thank Estefania Cuero for her commitment as the first speaker and look forward to a successful collaboration with Lucas Mueller.
SYA members are organizing a retreat in September for underrepresented Early Career Researchers (ECRs) in Switzerland. The retreat is part of the project "Challenging Inequalities and Precarious Working Conditions in Swiss Academic Institutions". The retreat invites ECRs who identify as first-generation or BIPOC/Jewish/Migrant to discuss institutional politics and their lived experiences in Swiss academia.
Sharing knowledge, meeting stimulating people and using interfaces.
The core tasks of the Swiss Young Academy include not only representing young researchers and promoting the science- and social-policy discourse, but also implementing inter- and transdisciplinary projects at the interface between science and society. For this purpose, each member has access to funding, which makes possible personal or joint projects in groups of up to 6 people.
