Optimized food technologies for nutrition and sustainability
ETH Zurich is stepping up research and teaching in the field of food technology and nutrition. It is supported in this by the companies Givaudan, Bühler and Nestlé with initial funding of 5 million Swiss francs over six years. This funding includes the creation of a new professorship. Raw foodstuffs are made suitable for consumption or storage through traditional methods such as cooking, drying and fermentation, or modern methods such as pasteurisation, pressure treatment or the use of enzymes.

Children not less active during COVID 19 pandemic
The SOPHYA study of the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute (Swiss TPH) investigated the physical activity and sports behaviour of children and adolescents throughout Switzerland over a period of five years. Physical activity did not decrease during the COVID 19 pandemic. Results show that the living environment and physical activity of the parents have a significant influence on physical activity behaviour during childhood and thus have a long-term impact on the health of children and later adults.

Preparing for future coronavirus variants using artificial intelligence
Preparing for future coronavirus variants using artificial intelligence
Researchers at ETH Zurich have developed a method to explore the possibilities of how the pandemic virus could evolve. Thanks to their work, it may be possible to develop antibody therapies and vaccines that are more likely to be effective also against future viral variants. SARS-CoV-2 is constantly mutating and each new variant often catches the world by surprise.
