What is SIRA?

SIRA is a non-profit association with the goals of fostering national and international collaboration within the ICT research community and of promoting the visibility and recognition of research and advanced education in ICT and its related fields performed in Switzerland.

SIRA achieves these goals by working to influence policy that impacts ICT research, coordinate ICT related efforts in research and advanced education both within Switzerland and with organisations abroad, and cultivating communication with industry, government, the press, and the general public.

SIRA was founded in 2012, as a continuation of SARIT (founded 1989) and a merge with SI-CHIP (founded 2011), with the purpose of strengthening the links between the Swiss research department heads in computer science and of promoting international collaboration. All professors in ICT-related topics at Swiss Universities, Federal Institutes of Technology and Universities of Applied Sciences, are invited to be individual members of SIRA. In 2012,

SIRA joined the Swiss Informatics Society as a sub-group and more information is available on their page housed on theSwiss Informatics Society’s main page.
