Foundations and enterprises

Together for world-class research in Zurich
You have the possibility as a foundation or enterprise to support the Excellence Foundation Zurich in its mission. Your involvement will allow the realization of scientific projects that will make an important contribution to society.

Possibilities for your involvement


Are there themes that you consider to be particularly important and where you would like to support research? Tailor-made partnerships are possible at the Department of Economics of the University of Zurich.


By creating new professorships, you enable research in important problem areas. Help find answers to the most pressing questions of our time.


The young talents of today are leading personalities of tomorrow. By granting scholarships to graduate students, you help attract the best young researchers to Zurich.

Independence of research and teaching
The Excellence Foundation Zurich supports the independence of research and teaching at the University of Zurich. The University of Zurich thus conducts the recruitment process for all donated or supported positions autonomously, and scholarships are granted in accordance with the University’s guidelines. All holders of these positions or scholarships are members of the Department of Economics.
