ThinkSwiss Research Blog 2008 !!!

Dear Visitor,

Thank you for visiting the ThinkSwiss Research Blog! The Blog provides stories, impressions and thoughts of U.S. students who received support from ThinkSwiss for their research stay in Switzerland!

My name is Andrea and I am currently working in the Office of Science, Technology and Higher Education at the Embassy of Switzerland in Washington, D.C. For the next few months, I will administrate the ThinkSwiss Research Blog, post some info, inspire you to write articles and initiate meetings!

At the moment, we are about to select the ThinkSwiss Research Scholarship recipients, who will be informed in the next few days. The participants in the life sciences summer schools in Lausanne and Zurich will also be selected.

All recipients will receive a login and a password to post articles on the ThinkSwiss Research Blog. I am looking forward to learning more about you and your experiences in Switzerland and hope the ThinkSwiss Research Blog will serve as a platform linking all the students supported by ThinkSwiss in Switzerland.
