EPFL is developing next-generation soft hearing implants
Working with clinicians from Massachusetts Eye and Ear and Harvard Medical School, a team of EPFL researchers has developed a conformable electrode implant that will allow people with a dysfunctional inner ear to hear again. This new device could replace existing auditory brainstem implants, which have a number of shortcomings.
EPFL students push the boundaries of concrete engineering
Students from EPFL and Brazil have built a ground-breaking concrete structure that sets a new benchmark for lightness and static resistance. This interdisciplinary teaching project, at the Smart Living Lab in Fribourg, is set to continue in the coming years.
