"Welcome to the Federal Department of Economic Affairs, Education and Research!"

Johann N. Schneider-Ammann

Feel free to take a virtual tour of the EAER, which employs around 2,300 people.

The EAER is where the federal government’s expertise on economic affairs and trade policy is concentrated. You can follow our strategy for employment, growth and prosperity in Switzerland and for securing sustainable development. Furthermore, the EAER combines education, research and innovation – three areas that are crucial for our society and for Switzerland’s economic performance.

You can browse through the dossiers on growth policy and agriculture – or learn about education, research and innovation policy, our measures to tackle youth unemployment, reducing technical barriers to trade, or our foreign economic policy instruments for tapping into world markets.

The website offers valuable information about my work in the Federal Council and within the EAER. There are also speeches and interviews I’ve given. If you would like to learn more about the Federal Council, please take a tour on this page.

Thank you for your interest in Swiss politics and your commitment to Switzerland!
