Associated Campus EPFL Valais Wallis

With its installation right at the foothill of the Alps, the EPFL Valais Wallis Campus is a prime location for alpine and polar environmental science. ALPOLE – the Alpine and Polar Environmental Research Center – represents the 2nd phase of development of EPFL in Valais, initiated a few years ago with the support of the Canton of Valais as part of the Energypolis Campus in Sion, in close collaboration with the HES⁠-⁠SO University of Applied Sciences and Arts Western Switzerland – Valais-Wallis and other actors of the local research and innovation ecosystem.

The research community created at the Energypolis Campus notably addresses the impacts of climate change on highly vulnerable ecosystems, and creates solutions for the future sustainable operation of our societies, for example through renewable energy.
