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.
