Launch of the #NCCRwomen campaign

Meet the NCCR women! To celebrate the 50th anniversary of women obtaining the right to vote in Switzerland, the 22 active NCCRs have joint forces in a campaign showing how in these 50 years women have come to occupy a central place in research in almost all scientific fields.



From Women’s Day on March 8th, to October 31st, the 50th anniversary of the women’s first vote in Switzerland, these female researchers will be showing you who they are, what they do and why they are doing it.

Each week, a new NCCR will introduce some of their female researchers, starting with the NCCR Microbiomes on the 8th March. The videos will be posted every week on the NCCR women YouTube and Instagram channels. The women of NCCR Chemical Biology will be taking over from May 31 to June 4.
