Strategy and Planning
Swiss higher education institutions develop quarterly strategic plans and present them to the Swiss Conference of Higher Education Institutions. In these plans, the institutions define common goals and measures, and calculate the necessary federal funding.
The universities and Universities of Applied Sciences and Arts have created separate plans for the period 2017–2020. Priorities include measures to promote academic career development, to support research infrastructures and to eliminate the shortage of qualified professionals in healthcare and technical jobs.
