We can’t just wait for the future to arrive, we must actively build it. This means being at the forefront of knowledge and skills. Education is one of the core missions of the EPFL+ECAL Lab, where our interdisciplinary team supports students, academics, and companies. We offer a large diversity of formats from workshops and classes for EPFL and ECAL students, up to our in-house postgraduate curriculum. We also propose tailor-made continuing education for partners, adapting to their needs and requirements. Topics vary from very specific questions to wider design research practice. We also engage in teaching collaborations with contributions at other schools including Politecnico di Milano and the University of the Arts London.
