The ETH Board welcomes the developments in Swiss-EU relations announced by the Federal Council on 8 November and by the European Commission on 21 November.
At the request of the Federal Council and on the recommendation of a panel of international experts, the ETH Board and the institutions of the ETH Domain are reviewing the current structure of the ETH Domain.
The universities and research and innovation promotion organisations are calling for significant, real growth for the entire ERI sector over the next four-year period.
The ETH Domain depends on adequate, stable funding from the Confederation if it is to fulfil its role in driving innovation for Switzerland and educating urgently needed specialists.
The ETH Board appointed four women and six men as professors and awarded the title of professor to five individuals. It also took note of the resignation of one professor and thanked him for his services.
Pursuant to Art. 27 of the Ordinance on Public Procurement, contracting authorities subject to the Swiss federal legislation on public procurement are required once a year to report in electronic form on their public contracts exceeding CHF 50,000.
The ETH Board appointed 5 women and 10 men as professors and awarded the title of Professor to one individual and the title of Professor of Practice to one individual. It also took note of the resignation of one professor and thanked him for his services.
The skills shortages and the strong demand on the Swiss labour market for holders of ETH degrees justifies the increase in student numbers at the Federal Institutes of Technology. However, the constant growth in numbers poses considerable challenges.
