Celebration: EPFL turns 50!

2019 marks EPFL’s 50th anniversary as a federal institute of technology. To celebrate this golden anniversary, EPFL puts on a series of festivities and events showcasing science, research, education and innovation. An event dedicated to scientific research with a particular focus on the future built environment will take place on 13 September 2019 at Smart Living Lab in Fribourg. Upon invitation.

The Research Days will bring together key political figures from the area, local industrial partners and academic partners of the EPFL campuses (Sion, Neuchâtel, Geneva, Fribourg, Lausanne). Covering the key themes of each site, the event’s objective is to show how research contributes or can contribute to society, both with political support and through collaboration with industry.

The Vice-Presidency for Research will organise these events on the different campuses around key themes: energy, microtechnology, neuro and brain research, eco-buildings and ecology.

Some key projects will then take centre stage at the Open House event on 14 and 15 September on EPFL campus in Ecublens, Lausanne.
