Eco-mouse wins student prize of innovation and entrepreneurship
In the fifth anniversary edition of the graduate course “Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Engineering,” students across many disciplines at EPFL tackled prototyping challenges related to the development of energy-efficient devices. Led by Prof. Véronique Michaud and Prof. Thomas Weber, and supported by a diverse group of additional faculty, nine student teams engaged in various industrial challenges, in collaboration with this year’s industry sponsors Boschung Mecatronic, Datwyler, Logitech, Schindler, and ZF Group. In addition to finding an innovative technological solution with a viable business model, the challenge included a quest for energy efficiency. This year’s winning team provided a bio-based alternative to conventional plastic used in the manufacturing of Logitech computer mice.

INSTITUTES & CENTER
The Management of Technology & Entrepreneurship Institute has been created to foster research and to offer strong programs in the fields of management of technology, entrepreneurship & public policy.
The Swiss Finance Institute @ EPFL has been created to foster research in finance and to develop a strong offering of programs in finance and financial engineering at EPFL. The focus is on the areas within finance that have a natural interaction with mathematics, statistics, engineering, and science, namely, mathematical finance, financial econometrics, and entrepreneurial finance.
The Enterprise for Society Center (E4S) inspires economic and social transformation by producing, collecting and disseminating frontier research and science-backed evidence, with a view of helping enterprises and society develop practices, strategies and policies consistent with rising to the “grand challenges”, such as climate change, resource scarcity, social change, urbanization, or digitalization.
Heterogeneous Beliefs Recovery
We show that, in a continuous time economy with heterogeneous expectations, equilibrium prices entirely reveal the wealth weighted distribution of beliefs among market participants. Specifically, our recovery theorem shows…
