In the last few years new fields of activity have emerged around the interface of science and administration at universities. These activities require new forms of cooperation. At the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zurich, a new collaborative process has been developed over the last eight years to react efficiently and sustainably to new demands on degree programme curricula. This contribution describes the structures, processes and cultures of this curriculum development endeavour, and its future potential.
