SPI is organizing a workshop on Sciences and Humanities interested in Polar regions. The objectives are to identify and discuss opportunities, needs and structural barriers for Swiss researchers from social sciences and humanities (SSH) interested in Polar regions. This will be a great opportunity to better place these fields in the Swiss Polar research landscape and to see if the SPI activities meet there particular needs.

We would be very happy to count on your active participation in order to highlight the importance of social sciences and humanities and the Swiss competences in this field, and introduce them in the current SPI planning for the period 2020-2025.

The workshop is scheduled on 18 February, at the Muséum d’Histoire Naturelle Neuchatel. If you would like to join the event or need more information, please contact us at Secretariat.spi@epfl.ch.
