Vice Presidency for Operations (VPO)
The Vice Presidency for Operations (VPO) strives to ensure that all EPFL employees are able to develop their potential and that the School is equipped with smart, sustainable campuses where there is a strong culture of knowledge sharing among users.
To reach this goal, the VPO works closely with the researchers, students and staff on the various campuses, as these individuals are its best customers, in order to achieve the highest possible standards of service and, in doing so, support EPFL in its pursuit of excellence.
New prices in EPFL eateries
The prices of meals in EPFL restaurants and cafeterias will increase by 8% for students and 10% for employees starting on Monday, 19 September.
After the L’Intégrale bookstore closed on 30 June, we still wanted to have a shop on campus that sells books, class handouts and office supplies.
EPFL takes another step towards carbon neutrality
Today EPFL inaugurated its new heating plant, which has the capacity to heat and cool the Lausanne campus solely by drawing water from Lake Geneva and recovering excess heat from a connected data center. The ceremony was attended by local political leaders including Vassilis Venizelos, who is a Vaud Canton councilor and the head of the Canton’s department of youth, the environment and security.
