Research Development


We support excellent research at the University of Zurich and assist the Executive Board of the University in boosting UZH’s profile in this area. Specifically, we inform and advise experienced and junior researchers about funding opportunities, we coordinate research programs, research priorities and centers of competence, and we act as the point of contact for national research initiatives and the Swiss National Science Foundation. We are also responsible for the areas of scientific integrity and research ethics.
