Prix de Quervain
The "Prix de Quervain" for Polar and High Altitude Research is attributed to young scientists for outstanding achievements in their MA or PhD thesis or other research projects. The "Prix de Quervain" is announced annually, alternately for terminated natural or medical research activities related to polar regions and/or high altitude. In 2013, the call was open in the field of natural sciences concerning high altitude or polar regions.
At the occasion of the "Prix de Quervain", a symposium featuring renowned speakers takes place every autumn. The author of the awarded MA or PhD thesis or research project will be given the occasion to present his or her research results during this event to an interdisciplinary public.
The next symposium takes place in Bern on Nov. 6th 2013.
