Time to Get Together and Soccer Fever!

First of all, I would like to say thank you very much for all the posted articles, pictures and comments on the Blog. When I visit the Blog every day, I am excited to discover new articles!

At the moment, the ThinkSwiss research community in Switzerland comprises seven people in Bern, Lausanne, Zurich, Basel and Thun, with two more arriving this week. With more than half of all the participants in Switzerland, I would like to initiate a first get-together in Lausanne on Saturday, June 28, 2008. I asked Katherine Filip, currently at the University of Lausanne, to suggest a program for the day. We hope you will have fun getting to know each other better and exchanging experiences from different universities and research institutes in Switzerland.

We are delighted to announce that a second get-together will take place by the end of July 2008. Presence Switzerland is organizing a one-day trip for all participants who will be in Switzerland. You will receive all the details soon.

I hope you enjoyed the first game of the European Championship with Switzerland playing against the Czech Republic. How did you experience soccer fever? As you might have noticed, soccer is a popular sport in Switzerland and also at the Embassy of Switzerland in Washington, D.C. The Swiss Embassy showed the game on the embassy grounds with more than 350 people in attendance, serving Bratwurst and beer. I also had the pleasure to meet Katherine Stainken, another ThinkSwiss research participant leaving for Switzerland in September.

I am looking forward to reading some more articles soon. Enjoy the day and have fun!
