When EPFL professors or employees participate in the creation and development of a start-up, it is necessary to clarify the question of potential conflicts of interest.
In particular, the EPFL regulations requires that those concerned shall sign a personal commitment which includes basic and reasonable rules to be followed in these cases. The persons concerned are requested to contact the TTO.
The EPFL Directive on the management of the conflict of interest (LEX 4.1.1) defines the rules and responsibility applicable to such cases. Do not hesitate to contact the HR Department or the TTO as soon as possible if you have any question on such matters.
