New Swiss Research Centers
— The Swiss Minister Didier Burkhalter has presented eight new research centers today, the 15th of April. An important announce for research in the Lake Geneva region, it underscores the cutting-edge competences of the region’s institutions—for among the eight national projects, four are shared between institutions along the lake from Geneva to Lausanne. UNIGE, UNIL, and EPFL will benefit from around 58 million Swiss francs over the next three years from this collaboration that supports excellence in chemical biology, neuroscience, robotics, and social sciences.
