The ETH Centre for Students and Entrepreneurs

In the ETH Center for Students and Entrepreneurs should come together under one roof what belongs together: motivated talents who will help shape the world of tomorrow with innovations – be it

  • in the Student Project House, where the young talents can turn their project ideas into first prototypes in the makerspace,
  • in the ETH Entrepreneur Club and the Innovation and Entrepreneurship Lab (ieLab), where entrepreneurial minds are supported in developing their scientific knowledge into marketable products and are supported in the establishment of spin-offs,
  • at the ETH juniors – a student-run consulting company that carries out national and international projects,
  • or in the student associations of VSETH and SOSETH, where they can become active in university politics, culture and friendships for life are made.

The interdisciplinary exchange not only inspires the students, but also allows new, creative solutions to emerge.
