Industry & Academia -Collaboration & hosting
Globalization has greatly increased market competition and accelerated the speed of technological innovation. One of the key ways for businesses to stay ahead of their game is to be cognizant of the latest breakthroughs in research and participate in their development from inception. EPFL grants companies the opportunity to do exactly this by developing strategic partnerships with its research labs and centers and offering them space on campus to locate their R&D teams. These mutually beneficial arrangements allow large corporations as well as SMEs and startups to leverage the competitive advantage resulting from close collaboration with academia while supporting innovative research.
