Education and research

An economy built on knowledge

The Swiss education system reflects the federal structure of the confederation.  The administration of primary and secondary schools is left to the cantons and the towns, while the confederation is charged with the administration of universities and professional trade schools.
The Swiss education system offers numerous fields of study.  With regard to research and innovation, Switzerland is highly-competitive internationally, investing close to 3% of GDP in research and development, which puts it among the world leaders.
