Better Science Initiative: Baseline-Survey
As part of the project "Better Science Initiative" a survey is being conducted on the culture of science at the higher education institutions in Switzerland. Better Science starts on an individual level to make research and teaching more diverse, sustainable and offering equal opportunities. Filling out the survey serves to make the need for action visible. Click here for the survey (D, E, F).
The data collected will be used to establish a baseline for the project and will only be used for project-related purposes. The survey will be repeated in 3 years to determine a possible change.

Student Minds Project: Umfrage zur psychischen Gesundheit
* This survey is addressed exclusively to doctoral students of the MOL.
The mental health of students has suffered significantly during the pandemic. But even before Covid-19 students have been a particularly vulnerable group in regards to mental health. For this reason the Student Minds Project was founded by a number of student organisations. The goal of this national project is to protect students mental health, to destigmatize mental health issues at universities and to create more awareness.
To achieve this goal we need your help! In order to work on targeted solutions we need data to show us what exactly the problems are. Currently no such data on a national level exists. By filling out this survey you can directly support the project and help create a supportive environment at universities for mental health.
By participating you also have the chance to win the following prices: Voucher for the Online-Shop rrrevolve or a voucher for first aid courses on mental health by ensa.
