Facilities outside the departments
Educational and research facilities outside the departments are institutions which provide interdepartmental services for education and research and/or conduct educational or research activities. They may be run by ETH Zurich alone or in collaboration with other universities and are set up for an indefinite period of time.
ETH Zurich runs the following facilities:
The ETH Institute for Theoretical Studies (ETH-ITS) is an interdisciplinary centre for theoretical sciences, and focuses on mathematics, theoretical physics, theoretical computer science and related fields. It hosts visiting scholars (senior fellows) spending up to a year at the Institute and postdocs (junior fellows) selected by a nomination procedure.
The Singapore-ETH Centre for Global Environmental Sustainability (SEC) in Singapore was established in 2010 as a collaboration between ETH Zurich and the National Research Foundation of Singapore. The SEC aims to strengthen the capacity of Singapore and Switzerland to research, understand and actively respond to the challenges of global environmental sustainability.
The new translational research centre of ETH and University of Zurich unites researchers across various disciplines, ranging from technology and medicine through to materials science, stem cell research and robotics.
