A marketplace for digital solutions

The Community Service Hub is part of SWITCH’s vision for the collective design and distribution of digital services in the world of higher education. At the SWITCH ICT Focus conference, participants got an insight into the current status of the innovation project.

Today, Swiss universities can access an almost unmanageable number of digital services to assist in their daily work. These services are organised independently of each other and the solutions are distributed across the entire Swiss higher education landscape. This is where the concept of the Community Service Hub comes in. Together with the community, SWITCH is developing a platform for the exchange and distribution of IT services in the academic sector, with the aim of benefiting the entire Swiss teaching and research community.
