Open letter to Swiss Bundesrat: Science and education benefit from a reliable relationship with the EU

International collaboration is important and Switzerland’s participation in European research programs like Horizon Europe is dependent on the decisions we will make soon regarding our relationship with the EU.

Therefore, the AVETH has co-signed an open letter to the Federal Council that they should watch out for these interests of researchers when making decisions about our relationship with the EU.

You can find more information and sign the letter until Thursday by following this link here: https://reatch.ch/publikationen/offener-brief-an-den-gesamt-bundesrat
(The letter is available in German & French)
