Pillar 3. A PLACE FOR DEBATE
Disseminate knowledge by organizing seminars and public debates at both the local and international level, as well as at the EPFL / UNIL level.
Pillar 4. TEACHING ON URBAN AND TERRITORIAL DESIGN Connect to research and teaching at the frontier of contemporary and future challenges with the ambition to form the interdisciplinary “Urban and Territorial designer of the future”.
