CIS Collaboration Grant

The CIS Collection Grant was set up in order to support the launch of application areas of Intelligent Systems under the umbrella of CIS. The grantees will be attached to two labs of EPFL thus promoting the exchange between labs and different faculties of EPFL. Further the CIS Collaboration grantees, supervised by professors affiliated with CIS, contribute to the preparation, submission and implementation of larger collaborative projects between EPFL and its partners through CIS.  


The second CIS Collaboration Grant
July 7, 2020

The Center of Intelligent Systems at EPFL (CIS) launches a research pillar on “Intelligent distributed robotic systems”. The second CIS Collaboration Grant supports a collaborative research project in assistive distributed robotics to create smart assistive environments for persons with limited mobility.

« Our grand vision is to develop new distributed robotic systems at the intersection between smart homes, neuroprosthetics, and rehabilitation robotics. Rather than a multi-purpose robot helper, this robotic system will be modular and distributed, serving as an active interface, infrastructure, and actor to assist persons with limited mobility in their daily living. » say Prof. Ijspeert and Prof. Paik, the two professors federating the involvement of 14 laboratories from different schools based on several campuses of EPFL. This CIS research pillar on “Intelligent Systems for distributed robotic systems” pulls together amongst others researchers from robotics, artificial intelligence, computer vision and neuroprosthetics.
Applications to open soon. 

The first CIS collaboration grant
June 10, 2020

The first CIS collaboration grant was approved by the CIS steering committee for the project entitled “Cardiac Digital Twins and Culprit Lesion Detection”. The laboratories of Prof. Abbé (SB/IC) and Prof. Frossard (STI) will be hosting the first CIS Collaboration grantee. The selected candidate will contribute to develop the CIS research pillar on “Intelligent Systems for medicine”, strengthen research activities in this general area and facilitate collaborations between CIS, medical experts and hospitals.
