About eZürich

eZürich is an open cooperation network that was initiated by the City of Zurich in 2010 and has been under the auspices of the City and the Canton of Zurich since 2014.

eZürich pools the energies of players based in the Zurich economic area with a view to strengthening Zurich as an ICT location, advancing young talent and promoting the visibility of expertise available in and around Zurich.

The eZürich cooperation network is open to individuals, companies and organisations interested in becoming actively involved in the network, participating in eZürich events and helping to enable projects.

On a strategic level, eZürich is managed by a programmes committee. The eZürich community includes representatives from business and academia as well as professional and specialised organisations.

Whenever possible, eZürich works with existing initiatives and is also open to collaborations.

«Together with important ICT players, eZürich implements projects in ICT-related fields for people of all ages. A case in point is the annual IT-Days (Informatiktage) during which committed professionals offer young people impressive insights into computer science as a field of work.»

Chris Krammer, Q_PERIOR

Activities & Projects 

In the course of its young history, eZürich has successfully initiated and implemented various projects, including: Informatiktage, PolitTalk Digitales Zürich, the «Züri wie neu» website, the «IT-Dreamjobs» portal, the «ICT-Cluster Dialogue» event series, as well as representation at the CEBIT trade fair.

The annual IT-Days (Informatiktage) will be held from 12th until 16th of April 2021. The participating entities will contribute to advancing young talent and promoting Zurich as an outstanding IT location. They do so by opening their doors and offering a fascinating programme for school classes and teachers, inviting them to marvel, experience, partake and discuss in lectures, workshops and tours.

The Informatiktage 2022 will take place from 28 March to 1 April 2022.

Political decision-makers are faced with challenging questions in connection with digitalisation and its effects on society and the economy. The «PolitTalk Digital Zurich» is an opportunity for them to discuss these challenges with digitalisation experts.
