Partnering with you for trainings, workshops & seminars


The Postal Innovation Platform offers training, workshop and seminar events through its academic and postal industry pillars. Such events will be organized by the Ecole Politechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), one of the leading universities in the world, building upon its expertise and experience in executive trainings and postal industry as well as network industry knowledge.
Trainings can be carried out by EPFL either alone or together with its partners including the UPU, its restricted unions, postal operators, suppliers and others that could add value to such an event.
Trainings, workshops and seminars will be tailored to your needs. The following list shows how different training events and workshops could be organized:
1) Customized events for one entity
Trainings, workshops and seminars for a specific post, government or other entity which could cover the status of the postal industry, today’s challenges, industry trends, business and market opportunities, innovation and other topics relevant for the respective audience. Such events could take place in the respective country of the postal operator, government or other entity.
2) Customized events on regional level
Such events could also be organized on regional level including, for example, regional postal training centers and the respective restricted unions.
3) Events in Switzerland (with or without participation at the PIP Conference)
EPFL can organize for interested posts or regions training events in Switzerland as well as other countries in Europe. These events can either be organized close to the Postal Innovation Platform (PIP) Conference in Lausanne, in order to allow participants to also attend the conference as part of the training event, or any time throughout the year. Such events could be combined with site visits to Swiss Post postal facilities, other posts in Europe and the UPU in Berne.
4) Partnering for your own events
We can also support you in your own events, either concerning the organization of the event itself and/or by moderating sessions or workshops.
5) Others
Any other idea of interested entities is welcome and we will study your needs and provide you with a proposal for a customized solution.
Please contact us and let us know how we can best cooperate in order to meet your needs and come up with interesting trainings, workshops and/or seminars for your managers (
