SPG Besuchsprogramm für Studenten

Die SPG startete im 2010 im Rahmen der Nachwuchsförderung ein Besuchsprogramm für Studenten, welches ihnen Forschungsinstitute und Unternehmen vorstellt. Die Studenten sollen bei diesen Anlässen erfahren, wie auf verschiedenen Fachgebieten geforscht wird, welche Themen aktuell sind und vielleicht sogar ihren "zukünftigen Arbeitsplatz" kennenlernen.

Den Anfang machte ein Besuch im Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) am 04. Mai 2010 zum Thema "Energieforschung". Einen Kurzbericht über den Besuch finden Sie hier.

Der zweite Besuch führte am 22.11.2010 ans CRPP (Bericht in den SPG-Mitteilungen Nr. 33), am 18.04.2011 ging es ans ABB Forschungszentrum in Baden Dättwil, sowie am 30.05.2011 ins IBM Forschungslabor in Rüschlikon. Im 2012 wurde ein Besuch am CERN organisiert.

Weitere Besuche sind bereits in Planung.
