Next International Swiss Talent Forum 2021
Swiss Youth in Science unites 70 highly talented and motivated young people in Switzerland, giving them the task to collaboratively find novel solutions for globally relevant issues. The meeting is led by an internationally recognised Topic Leader, typically from academia, and the participants’ work is guided by a group of experts, who challenge participants with a question relevant to a specific aspect of the ISTF main theme. The work of each group is guided by a dedicated coach. To find realistic, culturally appropriate solutions to the globally relevant solution, the ISTF draws participants from more than 25 countries.
The eligibility criteria are listed in the event’s flyer below. In case of further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Project Leader via e-mail ([email protected]).
Important information regarding COVID-19
Due to the various restrictions regarding the ongoing pandemic in Switzerland and abroad, this year’s edition is adjusted as follows:
- The number of participants is limited to 40.
- There will be only 4 (instead of the usual 5) Challengers.
- The event will be organised at a national level and, exceptionally, we will not send an official invitation to international participants.
We hope that the situation will evolve positively in the coming months, allowing us to greet the participants in August.
We look forward to returning to a normal international format starting 2022.
