Idiap Research Institute

The Idiap Research Institute is an independent, nonprofit research foundation based in Martigny (VS), in the Swiss Alps. Its activities encompass fundamental research, training (graduate and post-graduate level), and technology transfer activities in the area of artificial intelligence both theoretical and applied. Idiap celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2021. The Institute's research fields include, among others, voice and visual recognition, machine learning, human-machine interaction, robotics, language analysis, social computing, genomics, or bio-imaging. Idiap's activities are divided into fourteen complementary and multidisciplinary research groups. A complete list of projects can be found here: www.idiap.ch/en/scientific-research/projects

The Institute is affiliated with the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and is one of the most active independent research institutions in information technology. Since 2008, Idiap has reinforced its connection with Ecole polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne through a joint development plan and a strategic alliance with the "ETH Domain". Several of Idiap's scientists hold an EPFL academic title and are teaching graduate and undergraduate courses. They also supervise students who pursue their doctoral thesis research at Idiap. Idiap's budget, which amounts to more than 12 million Swiss francs, is 54% financed by research projects awarded following competitive processes, and 46% by public funds. There are a little over 100 staff members in residence at Idiap, including senior researchers, researchers, research associates, post-doctoral fellows, PhD students, and visiting researchers. Administrative staff provides unique computational and research support services. Since 2007, all the personnel work at Centre du Parc in Martigny, where it currently occupies 2,500 m2 of premises over four floors.
