Welcome to the 12th Swiss Epidemiology Winter School in Wengen, Switzerland.

The next Winter School will take place from 18 – 23 January 2021, during the week following the International Lauberhorn ski race, when Wengen is calm, with few people on the slopes.

Each of our 6 courses runs over three days and consists of lectures, group work and computer practical sessions. Students stay on site and work hard in the mornings. Then they have an extended break to review course materials, catch up on emails or (more likely) go skiing or snowboarding. They reconvene at 4:30 pm for computer or practical sessions.

We currently assume that we will be able to run the Winter School in 2021. Should this not be possible due to official measures to prevent Covid-19, it is possible to cancel the event.
