Le Rigi-Workshop a été mis en place par la plate-forme de biologie pour promouvoir l'échange interdisciplinaire entre les jeunes scientifiques. Le thème de ce workshop de trois jours change chaque année, mais il se doit d'être interdisciplinaire, en incluant la biologie. Un maximum de 40 doctorant(e)s et post-doctorant(e)s de toute la Suisse peuvent y participer. La plate-forme de biologie organise les Rigi workshops en collaboration avec des chercheurs actifs, qui ont soumis un sujet approprié et appliqué.
