Kinder-Universität Zürich

The Children’s University Zurich (Kinder-Universität Zürich) aims to encourage and satisfy the innate curiosity of children. With this in mind, the Children's University organises lectures for around 500 children and various laboratory courses for about 20 children (per course) in the spring as well as in the autumn. Experts from a broad range of subjects and interdisciplinary fields respond to the children’s questions and discuss topics of interest.

The Children's University Zurich has been open for elementary school children (classes 3 – 6) since the spring term of 2004. In the spring term 2010, children will be invited to attend five laboratory courses and a cycle of six lectures.

As the world’s leading and most diversified global reinsurer, and the largest reinsurer of life and health risks, Swiss Re attaches great importance to expertise and innovation. We strive continually to acquire and develop top talent and to expand the knowledge on which our firm’s success depends.

We are delighted to be able to sponsor a promising, instructive and innovative educational initiative launched specifically tailored to the youngest members of society. Swiss Re is committed to being a “good corporate citizen” and is happy to support a project that encourages curiosity and questioning in future generations.
