EPFL’s School of Engineering and Vice Presidency for Innovation are excited to announce the fifth edition of its Industry Day – and the first since COVID – to be held on Wednesday March 8th, 2023 at the SwissTech Convention Center, Lausanne.
This event will bring academia and industry together to give PhD students, researchers, professors and companies
the chance to meet and discover new opportunities and synergies.
The program will feature plenary presentations from professors, start-ups and success stories of industrial collaborations on four topics:

- Energy and Materials 
- HealthTech
- Manufacturing and Robotics
- Intelligent Systems

A series of booths will exhibit current research projects from the School of Engineering and EPFL research centers.

Final program is online!

A unique convergence between research and industry
The event will include one-on-one meetings 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.

The registration is open!

We hope to see you there!
