DHCenter - logo

Created in 2018, the UNIL-EPFL dhCenter is an interdisciplinary research platform set up between the University of Lausanne (UNIL) and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Switzerland, to facilitate collaboration between researchers working on the multiple dimensions of the digital transformation and dataification of the world we live in.

We are developing digital studies across domains in the arts, humanities and social sciences, fostering an energetic and interdisciplinary community of practice of nearly 80 researchers across our two institutions.

Our mission is to stimulate disciplinary innovation by providing resources for scientific engagement; to contribute to the definition of public policies by engaging with local and global discussions on the intended and unintended consequences of technology; and to reach out to new audiences in the arts, humanities and social sciences to preserve our cultural heritage and advance our democracy.

Because we bridge institutions, disciplines and domains, we encourage all forms of inquiry, methods and technologies that will advance knowledge in its many forms, for science and for society.
