Think of how your research – together with politics, industry, and civil society - can tackle the challenges we are facing as a society over the next 175 years!

Which course of action needs to be set now, so that in 2198 people can be equally proud of 2023 as we are of the developments since 1848? Why 175 years – in 1848, the foundations for modern Switzerland were laid by creating the Swiss federal state!
