With its six units, nine research infrastructures, around 100 commissions and 157 member societies, the Swiss Academies (A+) has developed a new multi-year plan for the period 2025-2028. The variety of objects and topics to be worked on, as well as the broad spectrum of disciplines, methods, knowledge goals and bodies of knowledge, could be bundled in six focal points. With its interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary approach, the academy network can comprehensively address urgent problems and identify viable, robust solutions.
The unique selling points of the academy network were consistently elaborated: the link between theory and practice; people from science, business and politics who are involved in the militia system; movable hinges between different disciplines as well as between basic research and applied and oriented research.
