ZORA ran SOLA 2018

8. May 2018 | HBZ | No Comments

For the 5th time in a row the team “ZORA rennt” was able to achieve a very good rank at the SOLA relay. In addition to dedicated runners from Zentralen Informatik and the Main Library, several other outstanding athletes were recruited to the team. Marcel Riedi, head of S3IT, mastered the final stage with flying colours.

The rector of the University of Zurich, Prof. Dr. Michael Hengartner, unfortunately could not take part this year due to injury. We hope that the committed Open Access advocate will be able to participate again next year.

The ZORA team would like to thank all team members for their great performance!
