Information on Technology Platforms

The technology platforms of the University of Zurich provide researchers access to first-rate and sophisticated technologies.

As a rule, all UZH researchers can use the equipment provided by official technology platforms. In some cases, the technology platforms are also open to researchers from other higher education institutions and to clients from the industrial sector.

All users are required to pay a user fee. If a technology platform can no longer meet user demand, a competitive procedure will be introduced to steer access. The operational manager at each technology platform decides which researchers have access and for how long.
