From time to time the SPS takes position on topics of special importance. These statements can be found in this section.

On 24.02.2022, Russian military invaded Ukraine. The Swiss Physical Society condemns the military attack by the Russian government on Ukraine and we ask for the immediate end of these unconscionable atrocities. Our community takes measures to support students and researchers from Ukraine. We are also inclusive to Russian scientists that are not in support of a military solution to this conflict.

We stand behind similar statements of the Swiss National Science Foundation, SCNAT and European Physical Society.

We have sympathy with and support Russian scientists that declare a strong protest against the hostilities launched by the Russian armed forces on the territory of Ukraine.
