The Academia Raetica, the association for the promotion of science, research and education in the canton of Graubünden and its surroundings, is organizing the 8th conference “Graubünden forscht” in Davos. The conference brings together young scientists from a wide range of research disciplines that are of societal relevance to Graubünden and the Alpine region. The scientific diversity of the talks is intended to encourage the participants to look beyond their own horizons and to open their eyes – and minds – to transdisciplinary research. For this purpose, we will allocate – in addition to the individual presentations – four 30-minute time slots for interested research teams to report in detail on their transdisciplinary collaboration. In addition, “Graubünden forscht 2022” offers researchers a platform to present their work to an audience that does not have a specialist background and vice versa, the interested public and scientists from other disciplines an insight into the diverse research in Graubünden.
