Kick-Off EPFL Lausanne

The «Lausanne Coalition» is ready: In September 2019, the kick-off event of the CognitiveValley took place at the EPFL Innovation Park in Lausanne. Backed and endorsed by this broad intersectoral alliance of 30 co-initiators and over 100 kick-off attendees, we want to use the enthusiasm generated there to accelerate our efforts.
