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.
