Every two years since 2010, Academia Raetica* has invited young scientists from Graubünden’s research institutes, universities and clinics as well as from neighboring regions to the conference “Graubünden forscht” in Davos. The best presentations and posters receive prize money and an award.

*2016, 2018 and 2020 organized by the Graduate School Graubünden.
