As the College of Humanities (CDH) Academic Guest for 2021, Peter Larsen, a senior lecturer and researcher in anthropology at the University of Zurich, plans to tackle under-addressed theoretical and practical questions at the intersection of heritage, creativity, and innovation in collaboration with researchers at the CDH and beyond.

Research at CDH is conducted through our two institutes:

CDH also runs the Collaborative Research on Science and Society (CROSS) program, which brings together researchers from EPFL and UNIL to address today’s key technological and societal challenges.

In 2019 we introduced a visiting professor program at our labs and research centers to promote collaboration and knowledge sharing with universities around the world.

The CDH also supports candidates who wish to apply to the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) fellowships: Eccellenza, PRIMA and Ambizione.
