Platform for Exchange among Swiss Health Social Scientists

, -

Room S8 | Maison de la paix, Geneva

With research conducted in Switzerland and beyond, health social scientists from diverse disciplines contribute to medical knowledge, systems and developments in multiple areas related to health, illness and care. Health social scientists’ platforms for exchange in Switzerland that go beyond disciplines are rare and mostly connect researchers from specific regions or language groups.

This colloquium aims to foster exchanges between researchers, and research groups in order to facilitate closer, synergetic and interdisciplinary collaborations of health social scientists based at Swiss Universities, Universities of Applied Sciences and other research institutions. This networking meeting is open to junior and senior scholars. Participants will present their research work and exchange perspectives in an informal format.
