Dear friends of ETH,
The past year has underlined the importance of mutual help and support, and your contributions have exemplified this. Thanks to donors and partners, ETH Zurich was able to accelerate vital research, extend scholarships for talented young academics during the crisis and press ahead with strategic projects in what proved to be an exceptional year.
2020 impressed on us the need to prepare for the future. It is vital that budding entrepreneurs such as Jonathan Kiefer, who is developing a new treatment for leukaemia, are able to introduce their innovations to society sooner rather than later. Promising talents such as student Janine Wetter, who wants to gain a better understanding of climate change, need optimal support today. And in the field of basic research too, it is crucial to act now to create the right conditions for the future: by constructing a new, highly specialised physics laboratory building, ETH aims to further expand its leading position in quantum research.
Your support gives ETH Zurich flexibility and freedom. Every single contribution is important. Together, they have a huge impact – for the benefit and wellbeing of future generations. We would like to express our heartfelt thanks that we are able to count on your support and hope that this publication interests and inspires you.
