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.
The Data-Enabled Circular Economy research innovation programme aims to transform linear value chains into regenerative value circles by working in collaboration with dedicated consortia of cross-sectorial partners.
We support impact-driven entrepreneurs by equipping them with the required knowledge and tools to develop and scale their sustainable ventures.
Tech4Dev is redefining development cooperation by promoting collaborative innovation between humanitarian actors and EPFL’s cutting edge technology ecosystem. Tech4Dev supports the testing, implementation and scaling of technological solutions co-designed by EPFL researchers and actors operating all around the Global South.
