ETH Political Structure
Besides social and cultural events AVETH is actively involved in internal political life at ETH Zurich.
At ETH Zurich Doctoral students, Postdocs and Senior Scientists are united in one block called Scientific Staff. AVETH is official representation of scientific staff in all political institutions at ETH Zurich. Twice a year AVETH holds its Assembly where representatives to ETH committees, such as University Assembly (HV), AVSZ, Gastro etc, are elected.
Generally, there are four stakeholder groups at ETH which are represented by the following organizations:
- Scientific Staff - AVETH
- Faculty (Professors and Teaching Staff) - Conference of the Faculty (KdL)
- Students - VSETH
- Technical and Administrative Staff - PeKo
Each group participates committees with equal rights.
