Managed by ETH Zürich (Swiss Federal Polytechnical School in Zürich), the Neptun project has a similar arrangement as Poseidon. The particularity of the Neptun project is to open sales twice a year, at the beginning of the academic semesters (in September and February), for a duration of one month. 

The Neptun Wave is open from Friday 28 August 2020 until Monday 28 September 2020

First, access the Neptun project and browse the homepage. There you can access all offers and information to help you make your choice.
