In 2018 the SSS would like to promote the natural history collections held in Switzerland. We are thus organizing an open-door day Saturday 17 Nov 2018 all over Switzerland, in museums, herbariums, universities or any other research institutes that hold natural history collections.
The event will include visits of the collections, conferences on the role of collections, presentations of scientific specimens, presentations of the latest new species etc. Any public-oriented activity on collections can be proposed!
The SSS will provide a booklet (in French-German-Italian) explaining the importance of collections, their role in the future and why we still need to collect.
Save the date! Check our website for updates on this project.
