Centers create networks, collaborations and synergies between researchers and students around state-of-the-art scientific subjects. They build bridges between researchers at EPFL and other academic institutions, foster innovation and contribute to advance and share knowledge on specific themes within and beyond the academic world.

The Associate Vice Presidency for Centers and Platforms has issued new regulations aimed at achieving consistency in the way EPFL’s centers operate and are governed.

Platforms provide access to cutting-edge technical infrastructure and know-how expertise to EPFL scientists and students to perform their research, making optimal use of resources. They are also a place where knowledge and knowhow is shared and where EPFL contributes to advance the state of the art in the techniques covered by the platform.
