The School of Engineering of EPFL is pleased to launch the annual PhD Summit initiative, a workshop for final year PhD students interested in a career in academia. We invite to campus, on a competitive basis, a group of exceptional graduating PhD students from institutions worldwide.

In this inaugural first edition, the Engineering PhD Summit will focus on

« Data Driven Engineering in the Life Sciences »

Selected candidates will be invited to EPFL Switzerland where they will get the opportunity to present their research and get informal feedback from top faculty of the School of Engineering and the School of Life Sciences of EPFL. Each accepted student will be given the opportunity to visit EPFL laboratories related to summit theme and have intensive exchange with the lab head and the students. The PhD Summit prize for the best presentation and research content will be awarded during the summit.

Funds for travel and accommodation will be provided for the selected candidates.
