02.10.2020: Reatch Ideenwettbewerb

  • Die Corona-Pandemie hat gezeigt, wie entscheidend eine gelungene Zusammenarbeit zwischen Wissenschaft und Politik im Ernstfall ist. Zu oft bleiben wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse in Krisenzeiten aber ungenutzt oder finden viel zu spät Eingang in politische und gesellschaftliche Prozesse zur Lösungsfindung. Die wissenschaftliche Ideenschmiede «reatch» will mit den Wissenschaften Krisen meistern, bevor sie entstehen. Dazu hat reatch einen Ideenwettbewerb ins Leben gerufen unter genau diesem Motto: «Mit den Wissenschaften Krisen meistern, bevor sie entstehen». Den Gewinner*innen winken Geldpreise und die Möglichkeit, ihre Idee vor einem hochkarätigen Publikum vorstellen zu können.
