AVETH is solely run by volunteers and we are constantly looking for new people in all areas. This year we especially need additional support for our postdoc+ and diversity teams.If you would like to take part in AVETH projects and working groups or, perhaps, represent the association in various ETH commissions, feel free to contact us before the assembly (interested@aveth.ethz.ch).

All members of the scientific staff are welcome to participate. We are looking forward to meeting you!

On behalf of the AVETH board


Covid-19 precautions for the AVETH general assembly

Thank you for participating in the AVETH general assembly. To minimize the risk of infections, we’d like to remind you of some general precautions:

  • Don’t shake hands.
  • Disinfect your hands at the entrance.
  • Keep some distance to the best of your abilities.
  • Cough and sneeze into a tissue or the crook of your arm.

At risk for Covid-19?

  • If you are coughing, don’t participate.
  • If you have a fever now or had in the past 14 daysdon’t participate.
  • If you have been to Italy, China, Korea, Japan, Iran or any other area with many known Covid-19 cases in the past 14 days, don’t participate.

Similarly, we suggest that members with compromised health should not participate. The next general assembly will already take place at the beginning of the autumn semester.

As a member, you are entitled to participate in the general assembly. However, these are extraordinary circumstances and we think that the health of our colleagues is more important than the AVETH GA. Contact martin.roszkowski@hest.ethz.ch if you have any further questions about the GA or the precautions.
