The Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) is a research institute focused on applications-driven materials science and technology. Founded in 1880, over the past 140 years Empa has developed from a conventional materials testing institute into an interdisciplinary research centre.

In its role as the interdisciplinary research institute of the ETH Domain for materials science and technology, Empa functions as a bridge between research and practical application. The organisation aims to find innovative solutions for the main challenges facing industry and society, with an emphasis on materials, the environment, energy and technology.
