These include, for example, the digitalization and optimization of buildings and areas. The prime focus aptly complements the thematic scope of the Swiss Innovation Parks. Supporting this commitment are the six central Swiss cantons, a strong economy and the institutions of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences, NEST, CSEM and the University of Applied Sciences East. > more
