Current SWEET call for proposals: Living & Working

SWEET Leitthema Living & Working - Bild 1

The theme of the call for proposals is ‘Living & Working’: the focus is on Switzerland's evolving future energy consumption due to new ways of living and working, different mobility behaviour or, for example, increasing environmental awareness. In addition to technical and regulatory solutions, the behaviour, social norms, acceptance and changing values of the various actors also play a key role.

In clearly defined geographical (sub)urban ‘areas’, the aim is to investigate how energy supply and distribution can be ensured efficiently and cost-effectively, and how energy consumption can be minimised.

Within the framework of ‘Living Labs’, new scientific approaches, methods and technologies are to be implemented, tested and evaluated in demonstrators. The human being as an individual, but also as part of society and the system, is a key element here.

The goal is low-emission, resource-saving and efficient forms of living and working while maintaining and, if possible, increasing quality of life.
