Background study: The higher education and research system in Switzerland - a country profile for AWTI

On behalf of the AWTI, Technopolis mapped out how the higher education and research system functions in Switzerland. How are higher education and research organised, what are their achievements and how is the system managed? The background study also describes the different types of institutions that provide higher education and conduct research. The study further examines the financing, management and accessibility of the system. Furthermore, the study discusses the link between the labor market and higher education in Switzerland.

This background study was carried out for the AWTI advice 'Shaking-up the system - Towards a future-proof higher education and research system'.
