How, where and when can and should the population be involved in a meaningful and beneficial way on the path of energy transition towards the declared goal of net zero? With its Citizen Science programme, the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, in close cooperation with the Swiss Museum of Transport, is providing a trend-setting answer to this question.
The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts is making its contribution to achieving the goal of net zero according to the Climate and Innovation Act and the Federal Climate Strategy 2050. Together with the economy, politics and society, its experts from the fields of technology and construction are shaping the energy transition in an application-oriented manner and transferring the knowledge gained on a solid scientific basis in a transdisciplinary manner into research and teaching.
It is of central importance that citizens are actively involved in the work process from the very beginning. This is precisely what the Citizen Science approach is committed to, which focuses very specifically on science communication, knowledge transfer and co-creation.
In cooperation with the Swiss Museum of Transport, the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts is now focusing on projects with a broad reach. The "Experience Energy!" exhibition, the Energy Events and the Energy Lab at the Museum of Transport are ideal for this. The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts is addressing the question of how, where and when the population can and should be involved in a meaningful and beneficial way. Examples include the collection and analysis of data or the formulation of research questions and their project designs.
The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts supports the Swiss Museum of Transport here in the development and realisation:
