Tech4Impact is EPFL’s flagship initiative for accelerating groundbreaking and sustainable technological solutions that create positive societal and environmental impact.

We provide a common platform to engage with students, researchers, entrepreneurs, corporates, NGOs, international organizations, as well as society at large in order to realize innovative and entrepreneurial solutions that have the potential to achieve sustainable impact.

Currently we are working on different projects, such as the data-driven circular economy project, our Tech4Dev Global South dedicated program, the Growth Stage Impact Venture program with UNDP, the Switzerland Innovation Tech4Impact, among others.
