Since mid-February 2024, the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation is providing information about its latest projects and activities on a dedicated news portal www.e2-news.ch. This website replaces the ‘SERI News’ magazine, previously published on print media. News updates will be provided in German and French as well as in some cases in English when the content is intended for an international readership.
The State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation
SERI is the federal government's specialised agency for national and international matters concerning education, research and innovation policy. Together with our partners, we seek to ensure that Switzerland remains among the top countries in the area of ERI.
The Swiss Parliament has mandated SERI to submit regular reports on the Swiss participation in the European Union’s research and innovation programmes and initiatives. The latest report was published in January 2024.
The consultation on the ERI Dispatch for 2025–2028 has ended. Around 220 opinions were submitted. The Federal Council is expected to adopt the ERI Dispatch for the attention of Parliament in the first quarter of 2024.
Recognition of foreign professional qualifications
The www.recognition.swiss website enables holders of foreign professional qualifications to ascertain whether their qualifications need to be recognised in order to work in Switzerland. Interested parties from all over the world can quickly orient themselves with just a few mouse clicks on this new information platform.
