One of the most important tasks of LSZ Communication & Events is the organisation of activities for the broad public. Some of these events, such as BrainFair, FameLab and the Nationaler Zukunftstag, take place every year. Others are non-recurring activities.
You can find upcoming events organized by Life Science Zurich here.
A list of upcoming events in Life Sciences at UZH and ETH can be found in the agenda.
Since 2004, Life Science Zurich has organised a number of large exhibitions: «Man Mirrored in his Genes», «Life Science Art», «Tree of Life», an exhibition for the Darwin year, «Mummies: Man, Medicine, Magic» and two special exhibitions in the Zoological Museum of the University of Zurich, «Don't Panic!» and «Crocodile in a Tree». Detailed information on these projects can be found in past exhibitions.
