Innovation Booster seeks circular installation solutions for buildings

Zurich – The Innovation Booster Circular Building Industry invites Swiss companies, non-profit organizations and research groups to submit their radical ideas for circular building solutions for the interior of buildings. They are to be implemented in the Humanitas Living LAB.

The sixth call for the Circular Building Industry Innovation Booster(CBI Booster) invites you to submit radical ideas for circular product, service or systemic innovations in interior construction by September 19, 2024. The focus is on installation solutions in buildings such as stairs, floorboards, kitchens, sanitary facilities, lighting, doors and elevators. However, we are also looking for services that facilitate the circularity of installed building elements and systemic innovations that encourage the construction industry to implement circular business models for interior fit-out solutions.

The tender also aims to promote cooperation with partners in Ticino. The teams are therefore called upon to include at least one partner from the canton in their ranks.

The leading house of the CBI Booster is the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. For this sixth call, the CBI Booster is collaborating with the Institute for Corporate Management at the University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland and the Humanitas Living LAB powered by Blanco Architecture & Design. The proposed solutions are to be implemented in the housing project, which combines sustainability and adaptability and tests new forms of living.

In addition to methodological and technical support, seven teams will receive direct funding of CHF 20,000 for the development of their project. In addition, they each have to raise 2,000 francs themselves. The award ceremony will take place on October 10, 2024. ce/mm
