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 2016, the call was open in the field of 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 last symposium took place in Bern on Nov. 25th 2016.
