Services for UZH employees

UZH is striving to strengthen its visibility and reputation as an internationally leading research university. The most important ambassadors of UZH and carriers of this message are the researchers, since they are ultimately responsible for the excellent reputation of our university. UZH researches can make use of the following WEF opportunities:

  • Join existing WEF activities and platforms
  • Networking with political, cultural or individuals that help to shape globa, regional and industry agendas
  • Organisation of public events, workshops, panel discussions or conferences with representatives of UZH
  • Support in the search for new collaboration partners

UZH Global Affairs will gladly give advice on cooperation possibilities with WEF platforms and initiatives.
