New University Research Priority Programs (URPP) ITINERARE

In order to underpin its position among the world’s leading research institutions, the University of Zurich has established its University Research Priority Programs (URPP). The URPP create and promote academic networks in selected areas of research and contribute to the advancement of knowledge in areas of research that benefit society.

IREM is particularly proud that Prof. Janine Reichenbach is part of the new URPP ITINERARE.
