We help EPFL technologies make a difference.

About us

We work with EPFL researchers to turn their technologies into business opportunities that can benefit society – in particular by capturing and licensing EPFL’s intellectual property assets, managing collaborations with industry, and by accelerating the commercialization of early stage technologies.
