Eucor-MobiLab Roadshow 2023
Science and society together for a sustainable future in the Upper Rhine
Making top-level research on sustainability in the Upper Rhine region visible to all is the goal of the Eucor-MobiLab Roadshow. In the cities of the five member universities of the trinational Eucor network (Universities of Freiburg, Basel, Strasbourg, Haute-Alsace and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) as well as in Kehl, there will be activities in the field of knowledge transfer, science communication and research. Citizens have the opportunity to experience "hands-on science" and to interact with researchers.
The traveling venue for the multifaceted program is the MobiLab - the mobile participation lab of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. The sustainably produced Tiny House on Wheels was created in 2021 by cooperation of the KIT Center Humans and Technology and the Karlsruhe Transformation Center for Sustainability and Cultural Change (KAT) and offers diverse participatory use options in the interior and the adjacent public space. It is thus ideally suited to host exchanges between the scientific community and the general public.
From June 26, 2023, the tour will start through the Upper Rhine region. Workshops and participatory activities will take place, as well as research on the following topics: Climate Change (Adaptation) in Cities; Energy (Photovoltaic, Geothermal, Lithium); Urban & Sustainable Food Systems.
The objectives of the roadshow are to make an innovative contribution to top-level research with cross-border partners, to promote the exchange between society and science on sustainability issues, and to increase the visibility of research topics in the spectrum of sustainability research in the Eucor region.
The framework of the event is provided by Eucor – The European Campus. The Eucor-MobiLab Roadshow is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts Baden-Württemberg (MWK) as part of the implementation of the Eucor Strategic Plan 2019-2023. The KIT Center Humans and Technology and the Karlsruher Reallabor Nachhaltiger Klimaschutz (KARLA) also financially support the roadshow.
