A joint program by EPF Lausanne and ETH Zurich, two of Europe's leading science and engineering schools.

Among the potential candidates for a long-term substitution of fossil fuel, power generation by nuclear fission is one of the options with low environmental impact, base-load compatibility, vast fuel reserves and a final energy price that is nearly independent of the price of the raw energy carrier.

Still in the minority: Women at ETH Zurich

ETH Zurich has set itself the target of getting more women into research, teaching and studying. However, up until now, the percentage of women has remained below the desired values. "life" spoke to three women about what is going well at ETH and what could be better. Interview with Ulrike Schlachter-Habermann, Departments coordination of D-MAVT. (From page 10) Read more
