Benoît Frund - Vice-Rector for "Sustainability and Campus"

Benoît Frund, aged 43, is beginning his second five-year term of office as Vice Rector for the sustainability policy alongside campus management and development.

Numerous campus development projects have been in preparation, particularly over the last five years, and now need to be progressed.

Sustainability is one of the Rectorate's primary objectives. UNIL's ambitious strategy covers not just infrastructure but also teaching and research, and involves putting sustainability at the very heart of its concerns. Numerous actions taken over the last five years have aimed to stimulate teaching and research on sustainability topics, position UNIL as a hub for thinking about this field and manage the institution's resource consumption more responsibly. The emphasis is now on building on the progress already achieved.
