What is SwissTalents ?

SwissTalents is the generic name for Swiss scientists abroad and foreign scientists with strong ties to Switzerland as well as for both categories once they have returned to Switzerland with international experience.

SwissTalents is also the name of a database for which scientists may choose to register. Profile updates require the use of a personalized password.

Finally, SwissTalents is the name of the Website which integrates the database of scientists, various types of information and other high added value services. Each scientist decides individually which elements of his/her personal profile stored in the database will be publicly accessible through the Website.
