For the first time, students from Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU) in Switzerland will participate in an Innovation Bootcamp in Boston designed to develop new energy solutions for a sustainable future.
Drawing on the innovative environment at MIT and Boston, students will work collaboratively to find radical and novel solutions for problems society will collectively face. This year’s challenge is to find a game-changing air conditioning and cooling system to mitigate the negative climate impact of billions of air conditioning units.
The Innovation Bootcamp is financed from two HSLU foundations and run as part of the Energy Lab in partnership with the Varanasi Lab at MIT. The team will be supported and accompanied by Prof. Dr. Ludger Fischer, affiliated researcher at the MIT since 2019 and co-head of the Competence Center of Thermal Energy Storage at HSLU and supported by Swissnex.
