Barrier-Free at ETH Zurich

In autumn 2020, the Executive Board gave the green light to the implementation of the barrier-​free project: over the course of the next few years, people with physical limitations or special needs should benefit from greatly improved access to ETH buildings and services. The cornerstone of the ETH-​wide implementation programme is the institutional approach to the issue and the establishment of an open and welcoming culture. The proposed measures will be implemented in 14 sub-​projects under three categories: “Construction”, “Technology” and “Organisation”.
