Home / About Us / ACIDE


ACIDE is the Association of Research Scientists and lecturers at EPFL which supports the professional interests of its members. It copes with everything affecting the professional life of the scientific collaborators and takes a standpoint during consultations on EPFL directives. However, ACIDE is not a trade union.

The scientific collaborators represent a large number of persons at EPFL.

Basically, if you are working in research or teaching at EPFL and do not have a professor position, then you are a member of the scientific collaborators represented by ACIDE (and you should carry on reading…).

Who does ACIDE represent?

ACIDE represents more than 3500 scientists and lecturers (the “Corps Intermediaire”),  including research assistants, PhD candidates, post-docs, lecturers and research associates. As the credibility of associations relies on the number of their members, scientists and lecturers provide ACIDE with strength when they become affiliated.
