Our Institution, as a member of the Swiss Federation for Adult Learning / Further Education (SVEB / FSEA), is following their rules and regulations during the Corona Virus pandemic. Many of our services are offered online during these times. Digitalized working has been applied across most functions. We strongly support the “study from home” initiative, the safe return on-campus facilities and the “Stay Safe – Hands, Face, Space” measures.
The SR21 – Institute for Scientific Research, Zurich, uses research-led teaching, a unique location and a strong sense of purpose to broaden its students’ perspectives.
We are planning to enrol our next cohort of students as smoothly as possible. As well as offering safe and socially-distanced access to key facilities and services, students will be invited to attend a broad range of virtual events and training, including inductions to their Lab, School or Department.
Our plans cover a full spectrum of future scenarios. Operating a flexible approach will enable us to react quickly anytime the Swiss Government guidance changes at a national or local level. Regular updates will be circulated to students and staff across all times so that everyone at the SR21 Zurich and Satellite centres is aware of the Institute’s latest guidelines and measures at local, national and international level.
