Season's Greetings and a Happy New Year from CODEV!
2017 was another exciting year for CODEV!
The EPFL recognizes social responsibility as a priority. The CODEV, in partnership with UC Berkeley is breaking new ground and now offering courses in Development Engineering.The key goal of this emerging scientific field is to turn technological innovation into social impact.
Born of a partnership between EPFL and the CIRC, the Humanitarian Tech Hub develops innovative solutions for humanitarian action. Ongoing projects include the development of a prosthetic foot, research on alternative water treatment in areas affected by armed conflict, and ICTs for humanitarian action.
Our EssentialTech School program has received the support of the new Swiss Data Science Center for an artificial intelligence project in collaboration with the CHUV and Terre des Hommes. The project to develop protective clothing against emerging viral diseases like Ebola has already resulted in a prototype in close collaboration with Médecins Sans Frontières, the University of Geneva and several partners within the framework of a Eureka project.
And last but not least…
We have the great pleasure to invite you to the keynote address by Prof. Jeffrey Sachs on 27th of June 2018 at the occasion of our next Technologies for Development Conference at EPFL. The conference is a unique multidisciplinary platform for technological innovation bringing together over 500 participants from 70 countries.
