About STF
The Swiss Talent Forum (STF) is an exciting event organised by the foundation «Swiss Youth in Science». It aims at promoting the best talents from Switzerland and the whole of Europe.

Swiss Talent Forum 2011
The theme selected for the second Swiss Talent Forum is: The Future of Health.

Ten different working groups will draw on the open-minded, impartial approach of the participants to develop new ideas andpossible solutions.

As a preparation for the International Forum (STF), a Workshop with 40 young students from Switzerland had been organised in September 2010. During these three days, the workgroups developed the most important issues of the 10 workshop topics. The participants of the main Forum will use these results as a starting point for their work.

5 – 8 September 2011

The second Swiss Talent Forum will be held at the Gwattzentrum Thun, Switzerland. Trains run every hour to Thun from all over Switzerland. Participants from outside Switzerland will get support for their travel arrangements.

Costs/travel allowance
Participation in the Forum is free: the costs of the event, including the return journey to the venue as well as board and overnight accommodation, will be borne in full by the partners and sponsors of the Swiss Talent Forum.
