Der Rigi Workshop wurde von der Plattform Biologie ins Leben gerufen, um den interdisziplinären Austausch unter NachwuchswissenschafterInnen zu fördern. Das Thema des dreitägigen Workshops wechselt jedes Jahr, hat aber immer sowohl einen Bezug zur Biologie als auch einen interdisziplinären Charakter. Es können jeweils maximal 40 DoktorandInnen und Postdocs aus der ganzen Schweiz am Workshop teilnehmen. Die Plattform Biologie organisiert die Rigi Workshops in Zusammenarbeit mit aktiven Wissenschaftlern, die sich mit einer Idee für ein geeignetes Thema für die Durchführung des Workshops beworben haben.
