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 research activities related to polar regions or high altitude research. In 2019, the call was open in the field of high altitude research.
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 announcement letter featuring the details concerning the participation in 2020 (polar sciences) will be published in February 2020
