Foundation Science et Cité

The nationally active foundation Science et Cité fosters with a variety of projects the dialog between science and society. It organises, among others, science cafés, exhibitions, festivals and conferences.

The main office of the foundation is based in Bern. It has branches in Lausanne (www.rezoscience.ch) and Lugano (www.ideatorio.usi.ch).

The foundation works closely with partners from  education, economics, culture and politics.

Science et Cité has the following three strategic priorities.

 
 
 

3. Dialogue between science communicators

 




  • «Das Wissen von heute ist der Irrtum von morgen. Dies hält Wissenschaft lebendig, aber erfordert auch einen steten Dialog mit der Bevölkerung.»

    Thomas Zeltner, Präsident Science et Cité
  • «Dans une société confrontée à des enjeux majeurs, comme la maîtrise des effets de l'activité humaine sur l'atmosphère, le partage des connaissances scientifiques avec le plus grand nombre revêt une importance toute particulière. Cette tâche incombe à Science et Cité au sein des académies suisses des sciences.»

    Thierry Courvoisier, Président des Académies suisses des sciences
  • «In an era where science and technology is the main source of nations' wealth, Switzerland is lucky that Science et Cité helps bring this important message to the public and make sure that the next generation of leaders are science-savvy.»

    Pascal Marmier, Executive Director at swissnex China
  • «La culture scientifique: donner à tout un chacun l'opportunité de participer à la définition du monde dans lequel il vivra.»

    Béatrice Pellegrini, Conseillère de fondation, Présidente du Réseau romand Science et Cité
  • «Sono profondamente convinto dell'importanza di dar vita ad attività che possano avvicinare larghe fasce di popolazione - e soprattutto i giovani - alla scienza.»

    Piero Martinoli, Presidente dell'Università della Svizzera italiana, USI
