Training and further education
As a research institute concentrating on natural sciences and asserting that it is performing leading international research, it is essential for PSI to provide an innovative infrastructure and adequate material resources to enable this. Nevertheless, it is our staff the
brains behind the machines who ensure our success.
For us, our main asset is the outstanding skills, experience and motivation of our staff. This is why education is an extremely important issue for us.
The interest in scientific or technical education must be awakened at an early stage. The PSI (together with the other research institutes of the ETH Domain EMPA, EAWAG and WSL) promotes young talents also through common projects with the Swiss Youth research foundation "Schweizer Jugend forscht" and is a sponsor of this foundation.
