EPFL to host a series of Digital Day events
— Switzerland’s second annual Digital Day – an initiative of digitalswitzerland – will take place on Thursday, 25 October, with events held at various train stations across the country. In addition to participating in activities at the Zurich train station, EPFL will run a series of free, public events on its Lausanne campus. At the Rolex Learning Center, for example, visitors will be able to learn all about Data Detox through stands, workshops, technology demonstrations and a special exhibition. The day will be capped off by a pair of panel discussions on education in the digital age. The panel slated to discuss the political ramifications of this issue will include the education ministers of the cantons of Vaud, Valais and Ticino. Federal Councillor Johann Schneider-Ammann will attend the official ceremony, which will also be open to the public.
