smart living lunches

The smart living lunches take place every first Tuesday of the month from 11 am to 1 pm, in the Blue Hall on the blueFACTORY site in Fribourg.

These events are designed for the smart living community. From 2018 onwards, a "pitch your project" session will be often right after the smart living lunches.
