The smart living lab

smart living lab: a center for research and development for the built environment of the future

The smart living lab project is a cutting-edge, inter-disciplinary, interinstitutional platform that combines several lines of research related to construction technologies: material sciences and renewable energy production systems that take into account aspects that are related to the occupation of a building, living space and housing, such as comfort, health and air quality. It aims to be a center of national scope, recognized on an international level and involving a variety of players and institutions.

It brings together the skills of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL Fribourg), the School of Engineering and Architecture (HEIA‐FR) and the University of Fribourg (UniFR) in the areas of technology and materials, as well as law and human sciences.
