The Greater Zurich Area

Winterthur is located in the Greater Zurich Area, which houses almost half of Switzerland’s population and is not only Switzerland’s economic engine, but also a key business location in Europe. It employs a workforce of about 1.5 million multilingual, international workers in roughly 150'000 companies.

Apart from being a leading financial center, the Greater Zurich Area is a highly sought-after location for industries focused on knowledge and value creation. It plays host to internationally reputed research and education institutes and the close collaboration between research and business has turned it into an innovation hub for companies engaged in the life sciences (biotechnology, medical technology and pharmaceuticals), information and communication technologies (ICT), and micro and nanotechnology. The ZHAW is privileged to be working in close partnership with many of these companies.

Plan a break around the conference

You might want to add a few days of vacation in Switzerland to enjoy the many wonders of nature the country is blessed with. For more information visit
