The national Union of Students of Switzerland (VSS) has now launched an appeal for an open European higher education area, which is supported by the SNSF, among others.

The initiators and the over 30,000 signatories have now officially submitted their appeal to the Swiss and European decision-makers asking them to take steps to ensure the ongoing participation of Switzerland in Erasmus+ and Horizon 2020. In addition, they should look for solutions in order to safeguard an open European and international Higher Education Area.

The appeal is supported by, among others, the Rectors' Conference of the Swiss Universities (CRUS), the Rectors' Conference of the Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences (KFH), the Swiss Conference of Rectors of Universities of Teacher Education (COHEP), the Academies and the SNSF.
