"Son analyse minutieuse de notre document avec à la clé une soixantaine de questions nous a réconfortés, puisque le coach nous a donné la preuve qu'il pouvait 'rentrer' complètement dans notre texte."
This past month, ELCS has been working in the following areas: international development policy, sustainable investing and the SDGs, criminology, mobility, nature conservation, banking, finance, added-value retail, the future of applied research and technology, and quantitative finance. ELCS is also developing writing-skills seminars in collaboration with the Swiss supplier of a software solutions platform for the higher education sector.
ELCS has worked extensively with a range of Swiss National Centres of Competence in Research (NCCRs), centres of excellence, research and technology organizations, knowledge and technology transfer centres, Federal offices, and academic institutions.
Since 2010, ELCS has worked regularly with CSEM, a leading Swiss research and technology organization. Since 2013, ELCS has developed a similar close relationship with the Swiss Finance Institute, the Swiss centre of excellence in banking and Finance, and with the Idiap Research Institute in Martigny. ELCS has also delivered writing-skills seminars for UZH and works extensively with the university, alongside a number of universities and private schools in and outside Switzerland.
Where possible, ELCS supports projects with a particular societal value by offering advantageous tariffs, and since early 2016 has provided copyediting and correction services on a voluntary basis to Italy's BirdLife International partner, LIPU (via the organization's UK funding arm, LIPU-UK). That offer has also been extended to other projects involved in the preservation of our precious fauna, and paritcularly our avifauna.
Finally, I regularly coach Swiss students studying in English for higher qualifications at universities in Switzerland and abroad.
