We foster innovation at the crossroads between technology,
design and architecture
The EPFL+ECAL Lab is a laboratory located in the ECAL (University of Art and Design Lausanne) building, belonging to EPFL (Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne). Its aim is to explore the potential of emerging technologies through design – in other words, to transform scientific performance into user experience. It also tackles the challenges presented by new technologies. The EPFL+ECAL Lab is linked to the Vice Chair for innovation and technology transfer. It thus collaborates with numerous companies and institutes, working on real life projects. Its work is regularly the subject of exhibitions, conferences, and articles.
