On January 1 2011 Branco Weiss will donate Society in Science to ETH – together with a 20 million Swiss francs endowment to warrant the fellowship’s operations for the next ten years.
Society in Science was conceived by Dr. Branco Weiss as a fellowship program for young researchers that would be unique throughout the globe.
