Swiss-Korean Academic Programme

Six universities from Switzerland and South Korea have developed the "ARC-HEST: Architecture for Human Environment with Smart Technologies" academic exchange programme focusing on studying the working environment in both countries in conjunction with local culture and architecture.

A Summer school in Seoul in August 2019 and a Winter school in Fribourg in February 2020 brought together 30 Swiss and Korean students to study comfort in co-working spaces. The Smart Living Lab's partner institutions (EPFL, HEIA-FR, UNIFR) teamed up with the South Korean universities of SungKyunKwan, EWHA and Hanyang, and were supported by the Science and Technology Office Seoul.
