Innovation

We place great importance on creating value from the knowledge and skills of its graduates as well as from research conducted in its laboratories.

Creating value

Exchanges between the academic and the economic world are strongly encouraged and supported in our School and at EPFL in general. The EPFL Innovation Park is the home to numerous R&D laboratories from international companies such as Cisco, Logitech, Credit Suisse, Nestlé or Elca Denko who frequently collaborate with our researchers . Moreover, the Innovation Park is the springboard for plenty of start-ups, many born from ideas and research within our walls.

“Our spin-off will follow in Logitech's footsteps”

— On 17 November, Kandou Bus, an EPFL spin-off, announced that it had raised CHF 92 million in a Series C funding round. This brings the total funds the company has raised since 2011 to over CHF 130 million, placing it in the top five EPFL spin-offs by this measure. Its sophisticated computer chips form an integral part of the race to boost data transfer speed while lowering power consumption. Amin Shokrollahi, the company’s founder and CEO, is convinced that their technology could potentially be used in all types of communication systems, including satellites, within the next decade or so. We spoke with Shokrollahi about his vision for Kandou Bus.
