The Swiss Electromagnetics Research and Engineering Centre, widely known throughout the electrical engineering community by its abbreviation serec, was founded in April 2007 by the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich).

serec is a non-profit making interdisciplinary science network that, acting as a think tank, promotes electromagnetic (EM) research and development amongst academics, government and industry. It serves as a clearing house for distributing EM information.

Firmly based in the ETH Domain membership includes some 30 individual institutes of such globally renowned technical universities as the Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and Zurich (ETH Zurich), as well as many other engineering institutes at the leading universities of Switzerland. serec is recognized by 6 Offices of the Federal Government of Switzerland.
