Science division

The science division comprises the four disciplinary platforms for biology, chemistry, geosciences as well as for mathematics, astronomy and physics. The platforms bring together scientists from scientific societies and expert committees in Switzerland. They connect the stakeholders of the various disciplines, promote the transfer of knowledge, impart specialist expertise for society and politics, and provide good conditions for researchers in Switzerland.

The Commitee for the Promotion of young talents also belongs to this devision. It promotes science teaching at school and scientific literacy.
