Students from over 540 universities and more than 50 nations will travel to Central Switzerland for the Winter Universiade. Education is a central element of the Winter Universiade program. The five universities of Central Switzerland will jointly host a scientific sports conference during the event.
In addition, students in Switzerland will be actively involved in the planning and organisation of the event. They will have the opportunity to get involved with student work and projects in many areas. Participation in this major project will offer them opportunities for development, and to acquire valuable experience for their future careers. For the educational centre of Central Switzerland it is also a unique opportunity to present its range of services to a worldwide audience.
