The people service is evolving: it is now possible to add links to the Research IDs and a the list of scientific awards.

The people pages are mainly consulted to find the contact information of EPFL staff and students. However, they are also a showcase for the scientific skills of researchers and teachers.
Teaching data is displayed automatically by extractions from is-academia.
Contact data comes from the EPFL directory, according to what has been entered by the accreditor. You can request their change via the edit buttons available after logging on to people.epfl.ch .
Research data must be filled in directly on the page by each person (or by delegating it to his or her communication manager). By default, we propose a series of paragraphs to complet:

  • Scientific IDs (since 1 April 20): links to professional and scientific networks
  • Fields of expertise (to be filled in with keywords)
  • Biography
  • Education
  • Professional course
  • Awards (since April 1st). Pre-filled data as per VPR indications for some researchers: please log in to validate and display them.
  • Publications (either via an infoscience extraction or to be added directly)

It is possible to choose the language of one's profile, in French, English or both, via the editing banner at the top of the page after logging in.
