Each year, “Scientifica” is dedicated to a key topic on which the two universities are conducting research in various disciplines. “Scientifica” includes various formats aimed at the interested public, as well as special activities for children. Daria presented Intersex 101 as well as her own and ESR7 Martin Gramc’s research. For more about the event, please click here: https://scientifica.ch/en/veranstaltungen/
