The Ig Nobel Awards honor research that makes people laugh, then think.

After a 5-year break, EPFL and NCCR MARVEL have the pleasure to invite you to this show in English.

A few free tickets may be still available here. Moreover about 50 tickets will be available directly at the entrance of the Forum Rolex just before the show at 5.30pm, and will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. The show will also be live-streamed here.
