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.

Happy 10th birthday to Thymio, the teaching robot!

— Originally created in 2011 at EPFL, there are now thousands of Thymio II robots rolling around in Swiss and French schools, as well as private homes. The technology offers a intuitive and fun introduction to programming. Starting today, EPFL will be holding a birthday hackathon in order to come up with new ideas for how Thymio can be used to teach the basic principles of artificial intelligence.
