EPFL - Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne

EPFL is Europe’s most cosmopolitan technical university. It receives students, professors and staff from over 120 nationalities and with more than 300 laboratories covers a broad field of competences.

With both a Swiss and international calling, it is guided by a constant wish to open up. Its missions of teaching, research and partnership impact various circles: universities and engineering schools, developing and emerging countries, secondary schools and high schools, industry and economy, political circles and the general public, with a real impact for society.

EPFL encourages a spirit of adventure and is committed to innovative projects that combine fundamental and applied research, driving innovation and technology transfer. Thanks to a series of discovery projects applied to sport, EPFL has developed a very successful cross-disciplinary approach. EPFL was the Scientific Advisor of Alinghi, the two-time winner of the America’s Cup. Solar Impulse, Hydros, and Rivages are a selection of other projects that exemplify how know-how from EPFL contributes to developing innovative, performance-oriented technologies.
