Due to the current corona virus spread and the measures taken by the Swiss government we unfortunately need to cancel the summer school for this year.
We will resume the summer school in 2021. We would be happy to welcome you next year in Wädenswil at the ZHAW.

The course provides students from the ZHAW, students from partner schools in Switzerland as well as students from abroad the opportunity of an intercultural exchange and knowledge transfer in a unique atmosphere.
Among 25 lectures covering the state of the art in cell cultivation technique, 16 different exercises will be executed by the students to deepen the theoretical background and they will develop their own biotechnological production process in the form of a self-study. The students will meet experts from the biotech industry to debate about latest trends and for more discussions outside the university building an exciting social programme is planned. We are looking forward to welcome you here in Wädenswil.
