The Transportation Centre will help you to carry out a research or study thanks to the unique skills and expertise of EPFL scientists.
We can organise a conference or seminar with experts on a theme related to transport and mobility.
We offer tailor-made training with our experts, to keep your knowledge up to date in rapidly evolving fields.
“The EU is hitting the limits in the US system it's modeled after”
Policymakers need to reconsider the European Union’s heavy promotion of cross-border mobility if they want to preserve cohesion among member states, according to a new book by three researchers drawing on urban sociology studies carried out at EPFL.
Charging stations can combine hydrogen production and energy storage
EPFL scientists have developed a new system that addresses two top priorities of the energy transition: clean hydrogen production and large-scale energy storage. Their technology could be particularly useful in transportation applications.
3D modelling of the Flon river helps engineers plan a new metro line
Lausanne will soon be getting a new metro line, the m3, but question marks remain over the best way to build the tunnel at the Flon station – already one of the busiest metro stations in French-speaking Switzerland. Leona Repnik, who just graduated from EPFL with an environmental engineering degree, studied this problematic for her Master’s thesis and put forth a feasible solution to this complex problem.
TRACE is an interdisciplinary centre under the EPFL Vice Presidency for Academic Affairs (VPA).
