ETH Zurich and EPFL launch a green energy coalition
ETH Zurich and EPFL want to work with partners from politics, science and industry to push innovative storage and transport solutions for renewable energy carriers. The overall goal is to create a climate-neutral and flexible energy system for Switzerland. Around 20 partners and industrial companies have already voiced their interest in a collaboration.
EPFL survey assesses the well-being of its entire community
EPFL conducted a survey of its community’s health and well-being in November 2022, with the goal of pinpointing needs in this area and developing practical measures to address them. The response rate was around 25%, and all segments of the community were represented in the sample. Just over half of the respondents reported at least one symptom of burnout, and performance-related pressure was cited as the main source of negative stress. Respondents also reported a worrying number of incidents of bullying/mobbing. EPFL has already identified a series of measures it will take in the short and medium term.
