The 2017 Forum was hosted by ETH Zurich, the top university for education and research in continental Europe. The University is centrally located in the city of Zurich, which lies in the heart of Europe and at the center of Switzerland. Zurich has a multicultural flair and the variety of activities on offer attract guests from all over the world to this "region of short routes". Zurich is quick and easy to reach, whether by train, plane or private vehicle. Its international airport has direct connections with over 150 destinations. Just a 10-minute train ride from the airport and situated right in the city center, Zurich's Main Railway Station is regarded as a central European railroad hub. More than 400,000 people live in this experience, science and business center.
