The Research and Doctoral Awards Ceremony 2023 took place at the Forum Rolex on Thursday November 23 2023. The aim of this ceremony was to confer the EPFL Research and Doctoral Awards to the laureates and to congratulate all doctoral graduates who have successfully completed their thesis this year.

Doctoral Awards

The prize is awarded by EPFL each year to two doctoral graduates who have completed a thesis that is particularly remarkable for its originality, the impact of the results (publication(s) in one or more international journals) and the presentation of the work.

Research Awards

This prize is awarded by external donors to doctoral students, postdoctoral researchers and independent researchers in recognition of their exceptional research work in various fields.
