Demand Management & Masterplans

The Vice Presidency for Operations (VPO) has put in place two main instruments to support its planning strategy :

Demande de Projets et Masterplan VPO

For the planning of EPFL’s long-term needs, both in terms of financial and human resources. Masterplans are reviewed at least once a year and follow the budget process timeline. They are developed together with the School’s stakeholders.

Demand Management
Three times a year, the VPO invites the Faculties and Vice-presidencies to announce the needs they have identified that cannot be planned on the long term.

The information below is meant for the EPFL community only.


The objective of the Masterplans is to identify all needs that will arise, on a long-term basis, in order to anticipate these and ensure the infrastructure and services are kept up to date. The timeframe is generally of 3 years and more.

Demand Management

Projects following this process are primarily modifications, additions or improvements to existing infrastructure or services, with a timeframe of less than 3 years.
