No matter your research, no matter the stage of your career the SCSM is here for you! Be there or be square!

The goal of the event is to connect Slovak and Czech scientific expats living in Switzerland with an emphasis on natural sciences, materials, economics, computer sciences, and more. The target audience of the event is Czech and Slovak academics, Czechs and Slovaks working in the industrial sector, and students. We would like to provide an opportunity to present not only scientific and professional but also personal experience about living in Switzerland. We hope to foster scientific networking and collaboration among the community and help you to settle down in Switzerland, be satisfied with a great job and find new friends.
