More women in scientific leadership positions: this is the goal of AcademiaNet, the European database run by the SNSF listing outstanding women researchers.
Featuring the profiles of approx. 2800 outstanding women researchers from all disciplines, AcademiaNet makes it easier for universities and organisations to search for accomplished women to fill vacant professorial and leadership positions. Experts for media interviews, conference speeches or panel discussions are also easily found in the database.
The Relève académique portal is aimed at:
- PhD students, who will find advice, references and resources to help them complete the various stages of their thesis successfully.
- Individuals who are considering embarking on the adventure of a PhD but have not yet made a decision.
- Individuals at the end of their PhD, who are looking for information on the possibilities of pursuing an academic career or potential alternative pathways.
The Equal Opportunities Offices of universities in French- and Italian-speaking Switzerland have designed two practical guides aimed at the next generation of academics. “Getting your thesis off to a good start” is aimed at all PhD and other students who are tempted by an academic career.
“Beyond the doctorate” is aimed at people who are approaching the end of their PhD or have already finished it.

The Committee responsible for academic succession planning at UNIL supports the Rectorate in establishing a policy on the next generation of academics.
This policy aims to create positive overarching conditions for the career progression of individuals either remaining in the academic world or leaving it.
