A true centre of excellence and innovation

As a true centre of excellence and innovation, the HES-SO Valais-Wallis has 9 research institutes dedicated to applied research and development (R&D). The research conducted at these institutes serves to continuously update the training we provide with the latest findings and to promote the transfer of knowledge and the sharing of expertise. We run various projects both within and between disciplines in collaboration with industry partners and with other universities in Switzerland and abroad.

En tant que centre de compétences au service du canton, la HES-SO Valais-Wallis met tout en œuvre pour renforcer la culture et le travail interdisciplinaire en ses murs mais également vers l’extérieur. L’école a ainsi pris le parti de miser sur trois pôles d’action ou trois axes inter-disciplinaires allant dans le prolongement des priorités fixées par le canton et à même de la positionner en tant que leader suisse, voir international. Ainsi: santé, développement régional et Ages et liens intergénérationnels sont les trois domaines phares dans lesquels les compétences des différents instituts sont mises à profit afin de développer des projets novateurs.

As a centre of excellence that serves the canton, the HES-SO Valais-Wallis strives to develop and strengthen a culture of interdisciplinary cooperation both within and outside its walls. With this in mind, it has defined three key areas for development that are in line with the canton’s priorities and that will help position the HES-SO Valais-Wallis as a leader both in Switzerland and internationally. These three priority areas are health, regional development, and age and intergenerational relationships. We are bringing together the expertise of our various institutes to produce innovative projects in these areas.
