Keeping It Cool

Swiss students and American researchers working at the forefront of cooling technologies present solutions for more sustainable climate-controlled environments.

With climate change, the demand for air-conditioned spaces is rising – and with it the energy needed for cooling.

How can we create a more comfortable and sustainable climate-controlled future? This question pushed a group of 10 graduate students from the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences to visit Boston for a month-long bootcamp. They will join a panel of Boston-area experts to present the latest cutting-edge, low-energy cooling solutions.

This event can be joined online or on-site. In-person attendees will get to try special Swiss-designed glasses that can cool your room-temperature drink in just minutes.

Expert Panelists

This event will feature two of the graduate students from HSLU Innovation Bootcamp. They will share their findings as the challenge comes to a close.


The Innovation Bootcamp is financed by two HSLU foundations and runs as part of the Energy Lab in partnership with the Varanasi Lab at MIT.
