In the evaluation of new national research infrastructures, the University of Zurich (UZH) performs excellently: With five out of 14 prioritized major projects, UZH places itself at the unofficial top.
Once again, UZH proves its innovative strength: In the recently published report of the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI), five of the projects submitted by UZH as a sponsoring institution were awarded top marks. The projects were submitted for the Swiss Roadmap for Research Infrastructures - a comprehensive overview of projects that require major investments, are best realized in a network and are available to all Swiss researchers.
The UZH's results put it in the lead, with only 14 projects of all Swiss universities achieving the highest rating. Elisabeth Stark, Prorector Research at UZH, is also proud of the results achieved: "We are very pleased with this good rating and consider it an award for the innovative strength of our research".
