About the event

1848 → 2023 → 2198: For effective solutions, also in 175 years


2023 is a significant year for Switzerland: we celebrate the 175th anniversary of the Federal Constitution and thus 175 years of the Swiss federal state. In 1848, the foundations for modern Switzerland were laid, with significant contributions by the personality who inspired the Franxini Project by Reatch: Stefano Franscini was not only a member of the first federal government, he also founded the ETH and built the first federal administration. He worked tirelessly to ensure that science and politics contribute to the good of society.

We are convinced: The next 175 years will equally need people with foresight to jointly master collective challenges and to seize new opportunities — and researchers have a central role to play. Research can contribute to effective solutions if its proposals are embedded in politics, industry and civil society.


The Franxini project is looking for your concrete idea: How can research — together wish politics, the industry, and civil society — tackle the challenges we are facing as a society over the next 175 years.


Save the date: The final of the Ideas Competition takes place on November 18, 2023 in Bern.
