Academic & Training Activities

Education is one of the three main missions of Idiap. As a research institute, we collaborate with various partners and institutions to fulfil this mission.

Idiap Research Institute provides educational services through three main different programs:

Academic courses & trainings

We provide various academic teaching thanks to our collaboration with EPFL, University of Geneva, University of Lausanne, or Mines-ParisTech among others academic institutions. Thanks to an agreement with EPFL’s EDEE and EDIC Doctoral Programs, we also fund and supervise a large number of PhD students (35 per year on average). The Institute also hosts international master and intern students.



Applied master in AI

In collaboration with the Canton of Valais and Swiss Distance University, we also developed a unique program combining academic distance learning and on the job training. This unprecedented approach provides both an education and a tech transfer tool.




On demand, upon agreement, we can also provide specific trainings for professionals in specific domains.
