CROSS – Collaborative Research on Science and Society

The Collaborative Research on Science and Society (CROSS) Program encourages interdisciplinary projects that deal with current issues in society and technology, and that are carried out as a collaboration between researchers from EPFL (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) and UNIL (Université de Lausanne).

Through an annual call for projects, CROSS provides competitive grants to support the preparatory phase of new research endeavors with a view to obtaining major funding.

The project team must bring together specialists in the human and social sciences from UNIL, on the one hand, with specialists in the life sciences, natural sciences or engineering from EPFL, on the other.
