Dear researchers at the University of Lucerne
We would like to draw your attention to the University Research Pool initiative, which was launched in December 2020 at the University of Lucerne. The aim of the cross-faculty initiative is to give researchers access to a pool of participants for surveys and experimental research projects.
Researchers at the University of Lucerne can apply for a researcher account via researchpool. Once registered, researchers can easily embed their own surveys and experiments from external survey tools such as Unipark or Qualtrics in Sona Systems. You can find more information about this under the following @ unilu.ch link.
The research pool currently has over 600 subjects with a response rate of around 45 percent. Due to the different incentive systems for students in the faculties, participation varies greatly across the faculties. The Faculty of Economics (85 percent) and the Department of Health Sciences and Medicine (12 percent) are most strongly represented. Surveys can be conducted in both German and English. The system allows for segmentation by language, as well as other variables.
We look forward to welcoming your surveys and experiments on Sona Systems in the future
Your Research Pool Team

Women Lawyers Switzerland
20 years ago, Juristinnen Schweiz was founded - an occasion to make our association better known. Our ambition is to create a network for women lawyers. We provide a platform for our members to connect on a local, national and international level. At the same time, the association also supports members in their personal career steps, e.g. through letters of recommendation.
Together, we stand up for women-specific perspectives in lawmaking, jurisprudence, comparative law, legal research, teaching, and education. In the past year, we have been concerned with the following topics, among others (only in German, French, Italian available):
- New case law of the Federal Supreme Court on post-marital maintenance
- National gender equality strategy: unambitious and lacking vision
- More diversity at the Federal Supreme Court!
- Violence during pregnancy and birth
- CEDAW briefly explained - the UN Women's Rights Convention and Switzerland
Regular meetings are held for personal exchange. As soon as this will be possible again, I would like to invite you to the next event. So you can get an idea of the association yourself. Until then you can find more information on the website lawandwoman.ch.
