International Knowledge Base


The International Knowledge Base (IKB) contains information on ETH Zurich's international contacts, exchange programmes and collaboration links. The web platform features a global report (public) and detailed reports which are available per country, institution, department and professor (ETH members only).

Amongst others, the IKB is useful:


For professors

For professors being approached by students looking for a supervisor for their doctorate, professors can find out who already collaborates with the home university of these students.

For departments

ETH departments are confronted with many requests from other universities. Knowing about individual faculty contacts and existing agreements provides a basis for informed decisions.

For students

ETH students who would like to write their Bachelor or Master thesis abroad can find information on the institutions their supervisor collaborates with and on existing student exchange programmes or bilateral agreements.
