Fifteen teams from around the world gathered for a week at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology for the 10th annual International Physicists’ Tournament.

At the final on Saturday, EPFL edged out its rivals to win the tournament. EPFL’s team was selected to represent Switzerland at a national competition held on campus last December. A Swiss team also won the competition in 2013.

This year’s scores were very close: Switzerland (47.2 points) narrowly beat France (46.4 points), represented by the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris, and Brazil (39.8 points), represented by the Federal University of ABC (UFABC).
