Building Bridges to Leverage Science & Technology for Sustainable Impact

As one of the worldwide leading technical universities and a key player for disruptive innovation in Switzerland and beyond, EPFL has an opportunity for making its unique technological expertise and innovation competencies available to society, in order to realize innovative and entrepreneurial solutions that have the potential to achieve sustainable impact.

In this regard, EPFL is in the unique position to create the type of open and inspiring platform that is required for breakthrough solutions and actionable outcomes to emerge and which address the major challenges of our time. We believe in the power of co-creation with all stakeholders and the need to break down silos to realize the transformation towards a sustainable society.

To realize this ambition, we provide a common platform to engage with students; researchers, entrepreneurs, corporates, NGOs, international organizations, and foundations, as well as society at large.

Considering the unique ecosystem of the “Lac Léman” region, with International Geneva merely a stone throw away from the thriving academic environment of Lausanne, we engage in building bridges to fulfil the potential that multi-stakeholder partnerships hold for advancing the UN Agenda 2030.
