UZH hosts EU delegation

UZH welcomed ambassadors and representatives from EU embassies to Switzerland on its premises. The EU delegation held its regular meeting and later met with UZH President Michael Schaepman and Zurich’s Minister of Education, Silvia Steiner. 

UZH President Michael Schaepman gave an overview of UZH's research and international connections to amabassadors and representatives from EU embassies to Switzerland.

UZH fosters close ties to European partners

UZH highly values this exchange, especially at a time when Switzerland is increasingly politically isolated from the EU. „Our European partners remain an upmost priority for us, and it is important to us that our students and staff think, act and grow within a European context that fosters curiosity, free debate and independent thinking“, underlines Michael Schaepman.

In 2022, this endeavor led to the new membership of UZH in the European University Alliance “Una Europa” – in addition to other existing partnerships across Europe and network membership in LERU.
