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

The Advisory council for science, technology and innovation (AWTI) has commissioned a background study on the higher education and research system in Switzerland. It describes the structure, functioning and governance of the Swiss higher education and research system. The report addresses access to higher education, the financing of the system, the internationalisation of higher education, and discusses the linkages between higher education and the labour market in Switzerland.

This background study has been used for the AWTI advisory report Het stelsel op scherp gezet. Naar toekomstbestendig hoger onderwijs en onderzoek (‘Shaking-up the system. Towards a future-proof higher education and research system’). This background study has been carried out by Technopolis Group.
