A diverse, committed and stimulating research community
Across its several campuses, EPFL has a diverse, committed and stimulating research community that is active over a wide spectrum of quantitative and design-focused disciplines. To foster trans-disciplinary research we launch strategic initiatives such as the Blue Brain Project, the Swiss Plasma Centre or the Venice Time Machine. We address critical areas such as data science, personalised health, biomedical engineering, energy, robotics and advanced manufacturing, to engage in crucial societal challenges while ensuring that Switzerland remains at the cutting edge of modern technology. Our research community and the science it produces are open to the world: we share the knowledge that we produce, we engage the general public and we have many collaborations and partnerships with other institutions and research laboratories.
