Bringing together these activities within a single vice presidency seeks to forge stronger ties between students, researchers, and staff members.The goals are to encourage scientific and technological advancements by combining a strong foundation in the fundamental sciences and engineering with adoption of best practices in university-level teaching and an integrated approach to education and research.
The VPA supports ground-breaking projects that leverage our School’s knowledge, draw on cross-disciplinary skills and coordinate the efforts of EPFL’s many research institutes and R&D centers, to contribute to the solution of today’s societal challenges.
