This prize was created in 2020 to honor the memory and life of Kilian Schindler, a doctoral student in Management of Technology at EPFL, who passed away on May 16, 2020.
The Kilian Schindler Excellence Award is attributed once a year to the author of an outstanding doctoral thesis in the Doctoral Program of Management of Technology (EDMT) at the College of Management of Technology (CDM).
A jury composed of EDMT faculty decides about a laureate who will receive the award in a ceremony organized at EPFL. Financial sponsorship is provided by Kilian Schindler’s family who will also invite the winner (and guest) for a weekend in Zurich to spend quality time with them and exchange ideas over a nice dinner.
