On October 20, 2022 the Research Office and International Affairs welcomed EPFL researchers and staff at the Rolex Forum for a full-day of talks and networking opportunities on international collaborations.

The EPFL Day of International Research took us around the globe via region-specific presentations and discussion panels: from Africa to Asia to North America and beyond. The event also brought together internal experts from EPFL’s Central Services to highlight support offered on all the practical aspects of organizing international projects and consortia. Information was also provided via partner booths, accessible during the numerous networking breaks.
