Why “Einstein Day”?

The study and working atmosphere in Switzerland has played a key role in Albert Einstein’s success. Einstein lived in Switzerland between 1895 and 1914, during which he received his academic diploma from the ETH Zurich in 1900. After being stateless for more than five years, he acquired Swiss citizenship in 1901, which he kept for the rest of his life. In 1905, he was awarded a PhD by the University of Zurich. The same year, he published four groundbreaking papers during his renowned “miracle year” which brought him to the notice of the academic world at the age of 26. Einstein also taught theoretical physics in Zurich between 1912 and 1914. Einstein chose Switzerland for his education and groundbreaking research which ultimately led to his Nobel Prize!
