The University of Basel enjoys an excellent reputation and is considered one of the best research universities both in Switzerland and worldwide. Our success is down to the commitment and dedication our students, researchers, and staff, and this makes me very proud. Our university, founded in 1460, looks back on a long history steeped in tradition – a success story that is the driving force behind future development. However, it is not enough to just keep up with the times. We strive to be one step ahead, which is why our research today focuses on topics that will define the society of tomorrow.

You, too, can do your part to keep the University of Basel successfully on track. I warmly welcome your interest and your involvement!
