Our first Game Night organized in October 2017 was a great success! For this reason AVETH, GRC UZH and VAUZ will meet once again in the second joint “Game Night”. During the game night PhDs, postdocs and scientific staff from ETH and UZH play strategy games such as “Saboteur”, “Codenames”, “Mafia” and lots of others! Mixed groups of 8-10 people will be formed at the time of the event. Have other games? Feel free to bring them along and teach others how to play! Good time, drinks and snacks are guaranteed!

Last week AVETH and the ETH Library organised an event on sources of research funding for last year PhD students, Postdocs and Senior Scientists. During the event we learned about funding opportunities both in Switzerland and through the EU, and what ETH can offer of services for complying with the new open access and data management regulations from EU and SNSF.
