Selection Process

Dossier Evaluation

Complete applications are screened, eligible applications are assessed by a selection committee composed of C4DT leadership as well as EPFL faculty, and finalists interviewed. Great emphasis will be placed on compelling and innovative proposals, as well as on topical fit with C4DT and EPFL labs. C4DT will notify each applicant about the final decision – typically four to six weeks after the application deadline. Please note that the application process is competitive. This means that the submission of an application does not guarantee admission to the program.

Applicants who are selected for online interviews will have the opportunity to present and further discuss their proposal with the respective lab heads.


Applications are accepted and will be evaluated on a rolling basis. We try to notify every applicant no later than 6 weeks after the end of the final deadline on 31 January about the outcome of their application.
