The University of Zurich is member of the League of European Research Universities (LERU). LERU is a consortium of 21 renowned research universities in Europe. Since its founding in 2002, LERU has emerged as a prominent advocate for the promotion of basic research at European universities.

LERU aims at furthering the understanding and knowledge of politicians, policy makers and opinion leaders about the role and activities of research-intensive universities. Drawing on the impressive academic potential and expertise of its network, LERU has a strong and significant impact on research policy in Europe.
