Life Science Zurich Communication & Events

Life Sciences in Zurich

Zurich is one of the leading life science centers in Europe. Academic excellence, high profile education programs and the high quality of life render Zurich not only very competitive in the global market for talent at student and professorial, but increasingly at the entrepreneurial level too. The LSZ booklet (PDF, 4577 KB) gives you an overview of all the life science institutions in the greater Zurich area.
