BiographyLuca Fontana, EPFL Mobility and Travel Manager
I graduated from the University of Lausanne in the Faculty of Geosciences and Environment, with a specialization in sustainable urban planning. In March 2016, I took over the coordination of the EPFL mobility plan, which includes the entire portfolio of projects related to commuting, including the parking policy, the development of the public transport offer and the promotion of active mobility. Since 2021, I have also been coordinating the Policy relating to responsible business and student travel aimed at reducing the environmental impact of air travel, EPFL's main source of emissions. Rationalizing and better planning air travel via a new central travel agency, promoting train travel in Switzerland and abroad, and deploying new videoconferencing tools are the pillars of this policy, which has been formalized in the EPFL travel Directives that came into effect in January 2023.
