Switzerland new member of FARO
FARO welcomes Switzerland as a new member state. Switzerland is represented by Danièle Rod from the Swiss Polar Institute (SPI). The Swiss Polar Institute is based at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) with the aim to create synergies and offer services to the Swiss polar community.
SPI was launched by a consortium of Swiss universities – École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research (WSL), Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH Zurich) and the University of Bern, and cofounded with Editions Paulsen. SPI thus acts as a central node in the Swiss polar research community – ideal for representing the country in FARO.
