About the FHNW

The FHNW is an intercantonal public institute with its own legal entity and the right of self-administration within the framework of the state treaty of 27 October/9 November 2004 and the respective three-year mandate.

The strategic governing body of the FHNW is the University Board, which is selected by the governments of the operating cantons. Operationally, the FHNW is governed by the Presidium of the Board of Directors and the Board of Directors.

The parliaments of the four operating cantons are responsible for the overall supervision of the FHNW. These deploy an Interparliamentary Commission (IPK). The four cantonal governments are jointly responsible for supervision of the FHNW; their operations are prepared by the Government Committee/the four Directors of Education. Financial supervision is the responsibility of the Financial Control Departments of the cantons party to the treaty.

Save the Date: The 8th World Sustainability Forum - 14.-19. September 2020 - Geneva, Switzerland

Save the Date

September 2020 marks the 5th birthday of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. If it were a child and given the right circumstances, it would now have developed fine motor skills, be able to stand on one foot for 10 seconds, have long conversations, and start to develop independence and responsibility. With the 8th World Sustainability Forum, we are not only celebrating a birthday, but are also taking stock of where we are in relation to a more sustainable world, what has worked, what has not yet worked, and where we need to go next.

Sustainability has gained considerable traction: Many countries have integrated sustainability and environmental protection as part of their national development agenda, many businesses have realized the considerable long-term potential in sustainable development, and many research agendas have aligned with sustainability goals. It is now time for the research, policy, and business communities to enter into enduring dialog and to embrace greater global responsibilities. With this event, we hope to contribute to building a platform and network for a sustainability agenda that fosters partnerships among stakeholders beyond the boundaries of academic disciplines, narrow national agendas, and quarterly spreadsheets. The quest is to conceive of ways to assure long-term sustainable development for our people, our planet, as well as societal and corporate profit.

In light of the importance of developing institutional partnerships and networks, this forum will be coordinated by the MDPI Sustainability Foundation, the UN Global Compact, the Global Footprint Network, and the Sustainable Development Solutions Network.

The 8th World Sustainability Forum

WSF2020 is an international scientific conference coordinated by the MDPI Sustainability Foundation, under the patronage of the University of Basel, the University of Geneva and  the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (UN SDSN).

The language of the conference is English.

The World Sustainability Award and the Emerging Sustainability Leader Award will be conferred at the gala dinner of the conference. The World Sustainability Award is endowed with USD 100'000; the Emerging Sustainability Leader Award with USD 10'000.

Dr. Antonella Santuccione Chadha is one of the co-founders and the CEO of the Women’s Brain Project (WBP).

Antonella is a medical doctor with profound expertise in clinical pathology, neuroscience, and psychiatric disorders. Currently, she works as a Global Medical Manager for Alzheimer’s disease at Roche Diagnostic.

As a medical doctor, Antonella has decades of experience in preclinical research, patient treatment, clinical development, and setting up the international regulatory framework for Alzheimer’s disease. Always focused on solving the puzzles related to Alzheimer’s and other psychiatric diseases, she has worked with Swissmedic, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, several European universities, the EU commission for Health and Food Safety, the World Health Organization, and several Alzheimer’s’ disease organizations.
In 2018, Antonella was nominated in the TOP 100 Women in Business in Switzerland, and in 2019 she was nominated as one of the most prominent people in the city of Basel.

Antonella is keenly interested in removing bias so that precision medicine and novel technologies can be delivered to patients in a more precise and timely manner. She is advocating and acting for the creation of an Institute for sex and gender precision medicine in Switzerland.
