The current GPP program has expanded since its development and includes several additional components.  The original program (GPP Switzerland) consisted of the VT trip to selected universities in Switzerland, visit to Politecnico d’ Milano, cultural visits and seminars at VT’s Center for European Studies and Architecture (CESA).  In 2010, a partnership was developed with the University of Basel (UniBasel) which strengthened the connections and visits to the University of Basel and expanded the university visits to those in the upper Rhine region.  The UniBasel program was initiated and included participation in the global seminar at CESA, visits to U.S. universities and a VT-UniBasel global summit at the Swiss Embassy in Washington DC.
