Campus Valais/Wallis

The Valais campus of the Federal Polytechnic College of Lausanne (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)) represents one of the most important strategic projects for the canton's future. What is at stake here is the creation of an innovative partnership covering the entire value chain, from theoretical research (EPFL) to applied research and development (HES-SO Valais-Wallis) and economic development (The Ark Foundation). The goal is to create a joint campus in Sion uniting eleven faculties of EPFL and the College of Engineering of HES-SO Valais, as well as promoting the exploitation of synergies between the various local research institutions.
