The University of Zurich is a founding member of S-ADCN, the network of Swiss universities and research institutions supporting dual career couples founded in 2019.
S-ADCN supports cooperation and networking between the participating institutions. The aim is to create favorable conditions within the Swiss academic landscape to support dual career couples. For this purpose, the 17 involved institutions agreed on six measures and set them out in a letter of intent.
The network fosters an ongoing exchange of learning experiences and information between the participating institutions in order to develop best practices as well as individual solutions for couples living in dual-career constellations. The network encourages the (further) advancement of DCC strategies developed by the participating institutions. Additionally, the network offers training sessions at the network meetings.
swissuniversities, the umbrella organization of the Swiss universities, officially recognized S-ADCN as a network of swissuniversities in September 2019.
