Rector Christian Leumann on the 2020 annual report 

"The year 2020 pushed us to our limits. We had to completely switch all teaching activities to an online channel for our more than 19,000 students within the space of three days and also develop new approaches for our research activities.

Nevertheless, we were able to show once again in 2020 just how successful and important the University’s work is. We are at the forefront of international research on and against COVID-19. Our scientists are lending their expertise to make a valuable contribution toward overcoming this crisis."
