The Academic Data Unit (ACAD) aims to unite the schools, central services and external partners of EPFL around strategic and operational analyses of the academic field, to enable effective decision-making based on structured data and modern tools necessary for the management of a world-class university.
- Consolidation, validation, structuring and valorization of academic data related to education, research and technology transfer.

- Formulation and implementation of a general data governance principles, in partnership with the rest of the unites.
How many publications does EPFL produce in a particular field compared to our peer universities? What is the mapping of research fields at EPFL? What are the main drivers of the student population growth and what long-term growth scenarios can we expect? These are just a few of the questions that the ACAD team can help answer.
