Our Network

The primary target group of our work are UZH and ETHZ researchers and citizens of Zürich and its proximities, whereas our network expands beyond Zürich's and even Switzerland's borders.

Below, we present the regional, national and international partner organisations of the Participatory Science Academy.

In Zürich

Digital Society Initiative

The University of Zürich's competence center for digitalization and digital development.



Zürcher Gemeinschaftszentren

From the neighbourhoods' different interests arise different ideas for participatory research projects. Together we connect people, offer an open programme and envision mutual learning and shared reasearch as an important form of social participation and co-determination in Zurich.


Volkshochschule Zürich

General education for adults in the university sector, foreign languages, design, movement, communication; in the centre of Zurich. Broad spectrum of lecture series, courses and seminars on almost all fields of knowledge. No access barriers, registration obligatory.



Schweiz forscht

Schweiz forscht is Switzerland's platform for Citizen Science. We are in regular contact with the office of Schweiz forscht, take part in network meetings and work together to raise awareness for Citizen Science within the Swiss landscape of higher education and in civil society. Schweiz forscht is also represented on the advisory board of the Participatory Science Academy.



Alte Anatomie - Forum für Medizin & Gesellschaft 

As a forum for medicine & society, Alte Anatome puts individuals and their experience in the center of discussions over health topics. The forum's initiators are the Uiversity Hospital Zürich, the University of Zürich and the ETH. It is open to all.



The aim of the working group is to intensify cooperation among German-speaking countries, to use and foster commonalities, to exchange best practice and to establish effective ways of (informal) exchange. We strive for a trilateral project consortium, strong international presence and synergies, and close cooperation in general. Moreover, the concern is to further develop CS in German-speaking countries in terms of content and quality, and to jointly identify and set priorities.



EAWAG Cluster: ITD

Cluster: ITD (Inter- und Transdisciplinary Research) is part of Eawag – the ETH Domain's water research institute.
