Our mission is to tackle the major challenges associated to food and nutrition, and maximise the positive environmental and societal impact of the science and technologies developed in the school. To this effect, we act as an interface between EPFL and the outside business actors.

While scientific institutions like EPFL have the education and research expertise, as well as the will to foster innovation, it still exists a gap between science and industry. The IFNC aims to bring together these two worlds, in compliance with EPFL’s three main missions: education, research and innovation.
