Freedom and individual responsibility, entrepreneurial spirit and open-mindedness: ETH Zurich stands on a bedrock of true Swiss values. Our university for science and technology dates back to the year 1855, when the founders of modern-day Switzerland created it as a centre of innovation and knowledge. At ETH Zurich, students discover an ideal environment for independent thinking, researchers a climate which inspires top performance. Situated in the heart of Europe, yet forging connections all over the world, ETH Zurich is pioneering effective solutions to the global challenges of today and tomorrow.

ETH Zurich is strengthening its contribution to the Swiss healthcare system and is investing in partnerships with universities, hospitals, and companies, thereby promoting the translation of research findings into real-world applications. The Rehabilitation Initiative with its Competence Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Science (RESC) are key pillars in ETH Zurich’s strategic focus on health and medicine. The Competence Centre for Rehabilitation Engineering and Science (RESC) fosters partnerships with relevant stakeholders, promotes research, education and knowledge transfer. RESC works towards a holistic approach to rehabilitation along the continuum of care, and the inclusion of people living with physical disabilities.
