A broad range of topics will be discussed:
– Materials and Processes
– Robotics and Intelligent Systems
– Health and MedTech
– Energy and Sustainability
A series of booths will exhibit current research projects from the School of Engineering and EPFL research centers along with start-ups.
A unique convergence between research and industry
The event will include thematic roundtables and other networking opportunities for researchers and members of industry. Companies will discover firsthand the latest innovations coming out of EPFL labs and meet the researchers behind them, while pitching their ideas and challenges to potential new collaborators. Researchers will have the opportunity to present their work, foster industry partnerships, and identify professional avenues for their students. For their part, PhD students and postdoctoral researchers will have the chance to discover corporate R&D, get insights from the forefront of industry and make connections for their future careers. All participants will benefit from this unique convergence of research, innovation, technology transfer, and society.
