    Outlook

    The Zurich site is located on a greenfield site with a high level of flexibility. Planning documents have been drawn up, but still have to be realized. After the design plan has been set, initial projects can be implemented (conversion of hangars in the peripheral development from 2017, new buildings from around 2020). In parallel, an urban structure with services will be developed so that the researchers can combine living and working.
