It’s here and hot ! More intimate than Facebook, less flashy than LinkedIn, more characters than Twitter… Your private social and professionnal network is ready to link you to all the other scientific journalists and writers of Switzerland. Looking for a scientific journalist to animate a round table on nutrition in Basel? A drink and discussion with a colleague specialized in climate sciences in Lausanne ? It’s easier than ever.

You don’t have time to meet «in real life»? The Club’s Network offers you also the opportunity to create and animate groups of discussion online; the possibility to work together on the same virtual plateform, share ideas, comments, and why not start successfull collaborations. Ultimate goal: make scientific journalism and communication in Switzerland as efficient as possible. The keys are yours!
