Interdisciplinary student research lab in the Upper Rhine Region

Sustainability challenges are becoming increasingly interdisciplinary and international. The project “Interdisciplinary student research lab in the Upper Rhine Region” tests an innovative interdisciplinary and internationally oriented seminar format in the field of sustainability. A team of students from different disciplines (psychology, industrial engineering, geography) from the universities of Basel, Strasbourg and the KIT will conduct their own research by dealing with a specific research question in the field of energy and mobility transition. The project concludes with an evaluation of how this teaching format can be implemented in the study programs’ curricula on a long-term basis. The project is led by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and is carried out in cooperation with the University of Strasbourg and the University of Basel. Eucor – The European Campus supports the consortium with the Seed Money funding instrument in the funding line “Teaching”.
