Project work: joining forces, thinking big

New ICT services for universities are developed in close collaboration with experts and users from the academic community. SWITCH coordinates, promotes and actively participates joint development efforts through projects.

SWITCH projects aim to create valuable services for the Swiss academic community. SWITCH collects ideas and requests and reviews them together with university representatives for feasibility and added value. New services should benefit as many university members as possible and be perfectly in tune with users' needs. Projects and their working groups are vital to the success of SWITCH services.

Current projects
  • In the SCALE-UP project, SWITCH and nine project partners from the academic community are working together to develop cloud services for academic use. Teaching staff, researchers and students alike will in future benefit from effective tools to help them with their work.

  • The Swiss edu-ID will be a single login that university members can use to access all key Internet services within the Swiss academic community. It is aimed at students, researchers, library customers, administrative staff, alumni, course and conference attendees – in short, anyone who ever has anything to do with a university. They will only ever need one Swiss edu-ID because it will never expire.
