Supporting training and research

The VPRHO gives a very special place to EPFL's human resources management which, in their necessary diversity of skills and profiles, should enable the School to carry out its basic missions of training, research and innovation. In addition, it offers its expertise and services to the School's teachers, scientists and services in all matters relating to infrastructure management, occupational safety and health, purchasing and catering. All these activities are underpinned by the social and environmental responsibility of an institution that has a duty to set an example in this area.
