Billionaire Hansjörg Wyss has made headlines in recent weeks, mainly in connection with the sale of the English football club Chelsea FC. In this country, however, he is financially involved in completely different areas: Wyss has donated more than half a billion Swiss francs to Swiss research projects in the last ten years.
