Research infrastructure in a tunnel below the Swiss Alps
ETH Zurich established with the “Bedretto Underground Laboratory for Geosciences and Geoenergies” a unique research infrastructure in a tunnel 1.5 kilometres below the Swiss Alps. In the BedrettoLab, ETH Zurich studies in close collaboration with national and international partners questions related to geothermal energy, earthquake physics and the deployment of novel techniques and sensors in these fields.
The BedrettoLab is launching a newsletter, which is available in English. Sign up here to gain exclusive insights and to learn about current developments at the BedrettoLab!
