Together with our industry partner Siemens, we explore the potential of the Metaverse.

Project Information

In a groundbreaking collaboration, our team has partnered with Siemens to delve into the expansive possibilities presented by the Metaverse. This joint venture aims to explore the various applications and implications of Metaverse technologies across different sectors, including manufacturing, energy, healthcare, and infrastructure. By leveraging Siemens' extensive expertise in digitalization and industrial technology alongside our own research capabilities, we seek to identify innovative solutions that can enhance efficiency, sustainability, and user experiences within these domains. The project involves a comprehensive examination of virtual and augmented realities, digital twins, and IoT (Internet of Things) integration to create interconnected, immersive digital environments that mirror and extend physical world capabilities.

The focus of this collaboration is not only on understanding the current state of Metaverse technology but also on anticipating its future trajectory and potential impact on society and industry. Through this exploration, we aim to uncover new business models, operational strategies, and engagement methods that can be fostered within the Metaverse. This initiative represents a significant step forward in bridging the gap between digital and physical realms, offering a glimpse into the future of interconnected, digital-first ecosystems where virtual and real-world interactions coalesce to unlock unprecedented possibilities.

SWEET CoSi

The goal of CoSi (Co-Evolution and Coordinated Simulation of the Swiss Energy System and Swiss Society) is to explore the interactions between political, regulatory and societal frameworks and the evolution of the energy system. This transdisciplinary expertise from the natural sciences, engineering, economics, social sciences and the humanities will be incorporated into simulation models and enable more meaningful scenario analyses to successfully shape the energy transition.

SPICE

Researching Smart Cities with a special focus on sustainable scaling is a focus of our institute. We work in a consortium of four Swiss research institutes on a three-year project titled “Scaling Smart City Projects - from Individual pilots towards a Common strategy of industry Emergence (SPICE)”. The SPICE project is part of the National Research Programme on “Digital Transformation” (NRP 77). As experts in innovation and business models, we seek to analyze and conceptualize smart city initiatives from a business model perspective.
