Opening of the EdTech Collider – April 2017

We believe Switzerland has the potential to become a global leader in edtech. With EPFL taking leadership in the European MOOC landscape, Switzerland has become an important hub for digital education. This exciting development is further fueled by EPFL professors leading cutting-edge research projects on learning technologies. Promising education technology startups are emerging in Switzerland and beyond. Bringing these actors together and helping them thrive by offering a collaborative space and building a strong ecosystem can significantly contribute to the development of the Swiss education and learning technology sector.


The Swiss EdTech Collider is Switzerland’s first collaborative space dedicated to ambitious entrepreneurs transforming education and learning through technology. Located in the EPFL Innovation Park just a few steps away from EPFL.

The opening ceremony took place on the 27th of April in the Atrium of the BC Building :
