In 2014, the SNIS has succeded in its efforts to bring cutting edge academic knowledge to a wide audience. The first film documentary “Rubber in a Rice Bowl”, released in March 2014, has proved to be a particularly efficient tool to communicate complex research results. The movie that has encountered a remarkable success, will be screened at the Swiss Pavilion of the Universal Exhibition in Milan under the patronage of the City of Geneva. The SNIS is particularly proud thus marking its presence as an actor of International Geneva.
In its eighth year of existence, the SNIS is looking back on the work achieved and the aggregate numbers since 2008 demonstrate that the SNIS has definitely found its place in the Swiss research funding landscape. The overview “SNIS in numbers” provides some essential key figures. While looking into the future, the SNIS will also have to demonstrate its validity as part of the general effort to support International and Intellectual Geneva. The SNIS is confident that its stakeholders agree with Bernard Kuiten (Head of External Relations, World Trade Organization) who says in the guest editorial “the marriage is more than worth the effort”.
The SNIS wishes you an enjoyable reading.
