What does EPFL do to link the school with the industry?
Sebastien Gautsch, as EPFL coordinator for the Industrial internships, would be the right person to answer this question. The École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL; English: Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne) is a research institute/university in Lausanne, Switzerland, that specializes in natural sciences and engineering. Sebastien Gautsch organises the EPFL Industry Day at the Swiss Tech Convention Centre. This event allows to create links between private companies in the region, research labs at EPFL and students. All the presentations were webcasted by Klewel and are all available online including on the webpage of EPFL. Sebastien Gautsch explains the philosophy of such event in his introduction:
