Living Things @EPFL Exhibition
From April 29 to May 8, 2022
BEA Fair, Bern
BernExpo, Halle 3.1 - Stand B100

Animals and the incredible things they can do are a never-ending source of amazement. From the very beginning, humans have observed animals in order to unlock their mysteries and to perfect our inventions.

EPFL invites you to explore these close links between the world of science and the world of animals through a 200 m2 exhibition at the BEA 2022 Fair in Bern, where a selection of research projects from the school's laboratories will be presented.

This is your opportunity to discover how animals—whether they walk, crawl, hop, swim, or fly—inspire scientists in disciplines ranging from robotics to neuroscience, and how technology can, in turn, help improve our understanding of animal species.
Robot demonstrations, interactive animations, interviews with EPFL researchers, class visits, and workshops for families will also be available.  

« Any engineering device today is not even at 1% of what animals do in terms of complexity and multifunctionality.”
Prof. Auke Ijspeert, EPFL
