SwyMIC is regularly organizing wonderful events:

That’s Next:
Annual SwyMIC Meetup @ PSI | 17 Nov. 2023

Let’s explore the Paul Scherrer Institute together – the largest research centre for natural and engineering sciences in Switzerland! Although the meetup is organized by the young Swiss ESMI Group, participation is not restricted by any means and open to all.

WHEN? Friday 17 November starting at 13.00h

WHERE? PSI Forum, Visitor Centre PSI, 5303 Villigen


  • Guided Tour from 13.30h-17.00h:
    Introduction to PSI in general & introduction to radiopharmacy
    Tour through the Swiss Spallation Neutron Source (Laboratory for Neutron Scattering and Imaging) & the Center for Radiopharmaceutical Sciences
  • We conclude the meetup with an informal, free Apéro .

Deadline for registration was 9 November – sorry!

If you missed to register, but would still love to attend, try to reach out via SwyMIC@esmi-insight.eu

7 December 2022: Neuroimaging Career Event in co-operation with the Neuro-Imaging Study Group on 7 December 2022 (online)

23 September 2022: SwyMIC’s first in-person event was a guided tour through CERN. The tour was followed by an aperó supported by Merck. Thanks to all who participated. It certainly was a wonderful start to further streghthen the Swiss (young) imaging science community.

About SwyMIC

Founded in 2021, the Swiss youngESMI Group aims to create and establish a young Swiss network of dedicated imaging scientists.

Though there are many excellent research groups in Switzerland, there has not yet been a common, informal, open platform for young(er) imaging scientists to connect. Particularly in such a multidisciplinary field, it is crucial to make contacts, be inspired and supported by peers, and build a broad network – already early in your career.

Through networking activities, SwyMIC provides the environment to broaden and share knowledge and resources in the field of molecular imaging, and to interact in an easy and informal setting.

  • Bringing young scientists in the field together to share knowledge and foster collaboration
  • Offer an overview of regional research opportunities in academia and industry
  • To attract young scientists into the field of molecular imaging and the ESMI community
  • Create an informal and fun environment to share ideas and skills to advance the molecular imaging field.
