Since 2014 the EPFL Fribourg has been housed at the Smart Living Lab, a research and development center for the future of the built environment, in the bluefactory innovation district. Construction of the building for the Smart Living Lab is set to begin in the coming years in Fribourg. The building will be at the cutting edge of efficient resource use over its complete life cycle. Its construction comes 30 years in advance of Switzerland’s 2050 energy targets.

Smart Living Lab

The Smart Living Lab brings together the combined expertise of EPFL, the School of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg, and the University of Fribourg in research areas such as construction technologies, well-being and behaviors, interactions and design processes, and energy systems. It conducts interdisciplinary research projects through experiments in real conditions involving both researchers and companies. This allows partners from the private, public and academic sectors who are interested in developing innovative projects access to excellent research facilities available at the heart of the Switzerland Innovation Park Network West EPFL.
