SWISS UNIVERSITIES OF APPLIED SCIENCES

Switzerland’s UAS sector is comprised of seven public UAS and two private UAS. The seven public
UAS received approval from the Federal Council in 1998. Each of these public UAS is run by one or
more Cantons. The two private UAS were approved by the Federal Council in 2005 (Kalaidos) and 2008
(Roches-Gruyère).

The Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences provide an excellent opportunity for collaboration in the area
of applied sciences and also presents a great opportunity for cooperation with the South Africa
Universities of Technology. The below link provide you with an overview and contact of all the Swiss
Universities of Applied Sciences and Contacts per area.

SWISS PARTICIPATION IN EU RESEARCH
http://www.euresearch.ch/


SWISS NATIONAL CENTERS OF RESEARCH
“ National Centres of Competence in Research promote long-term research projects in areas of vital
strategic importance for the development of science in Switzerland, for the economy of the country, and
for Swiss society. Each Centre of Competence is under the directorship of a university or another
recognised research institution which allows research groups based at the home institution to network
with other teams working throughout Switzerland.

Thus, NCCRs improve the research structure in Switzerland. Other important features are: research of
outstanding, internationally recognised quality, knowledge and technology transfer, training and the
promotion of women researchers.

The NCCRs are mainly financed through federal funds budgeted by parliament. This is complemented
by funds from the universities themselves and third-party funds. Launched in 2001, the programme
presently includes 20 NCCRs”
