Last Wednesday the new Head of the Education Department of the Canton Basel-Stadt paid the ETH Zurich Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering a visit: Dr. Conradin Cramer got a first impression of the ETH Zurich’s site in Basel and the Department’s interdisciplinary research work.
Since 2017 Dr. Conradin Cramer is the Head of the Education Department of the Canton Basel-Stadt and successor to Dr. Christoph Eymann. In connection with the 10th anniversary of D-BSSE Conradin Cramer paid the Department a visit. After the two-hour visit he concluded:
„Particularly, I was impressed by the good atmosphere at D-BSSE. Obviously, the interdisciplinary work and exchange at the Department fosters this good atmosphere. Not to be underestimated - and I am serious about that - is the get-together at the shared coffee machine in the Science Lounge. For Basel it is important to have two strong players with the University of Basel and ETH Zurich on-site. I am very pleased about the decision of ETH Zurich to invest in the Basel site and the new buildling on the Schällemätteli.“
Since his election to the Basel-Stadt cantonal government Dr. Conradin Cramer heads the Education Department of Basel-Stadt. The Education Department is the largest department of the seven departments of the Canton Basel-Stadt - approximately 7’000 people are working in the Education Department.
