Interdisciplinary research initiatives
Exchange and collaboration are vital for new insights and creativity in research. This is why ETH Zurich hosts numerous interdisciplinary programmes and initiatives. For instance, ETH's Competence Centres are self-organised networks that are supported by the university's Executive Board.
The National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCR) and the Swiss Competence Centres for Energy Research (SCCER) are research programmes that run over several years and are funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation or Innosuisse, ETH Zurich, and partnering universities.
