Evaluation Secondary occupation of university professors: policy and practice

Audit number: 7308

At practically all universities and Federal Institutes of Technology throughout Switzerland, professors have to a greater or lesser extent the possibility of pursuing secondary occupation on a private basis during working hours. Theoretically, around 2,500 persons from universities and Federal Institutes of Technology in Switzerland could undertake such part-time work, and if all of them were to apply on average 15% of their working time to such activities then, assuming an average gross income of CHF 200,000 per person, some 75 million Swiss Francs would be turned over.
