Dr. Sanna Fowler
Deputy Director of Development, EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne)
Originally an immunologist, Sanna decided shortly after her PhD at Oxford that the lab bench was probably better off without her. After a career curveball into sports marketing and communication with the America’s Cup sailing team Alinghi, she is happy to have found her way back to science: not in the lab, but in communication and fundraising. She is part of a dynamic team at EPFL, responsible for sharing the school’s incredible discovery and innovation and raising the profile of the institution internationally. Sanna is still passionate about science and feels we are living in a time of silent revolution: democratising knowledge and breaking down the barriers between science and society. She has managed several ‘out of the box’ communication projects including Technologist – a radically different European science magazine, Fusebox – a crowdsourced innovation platform, as well as conferences and exhibitions aimed at the general public.
