Open Lab Days are events offered to citizens that allow them to develop innovative concepts while being accompanied in the innovation process. On May 2nd, Syntezia organizes in partnership with NTN Innovation Booster Living Labs for Decarbonisation & the Energy Living Lab Association an Open Lab Day in Geneva, open to all, which will take place at the Ecole Hôtelière de Genève (registration required).
The principle is simple, one day to develop in interdisciplinary groups concepts in decarbonization. Any interested person or company can participate and submit their decarbonization idea in relation to mobility, circular economy, energy efficiency or digitalization. Each group will be accompanied by experts in innovation and decarbonization who propose the use of design thinking tools as well as innovative approaches.
“This type of event allows us to take participants’ ideas to another level,” says Yves Zieba, founder of Syntezia and coordinator of the event. “Interested individuals or companies can submit their ideas directly to our ideation platform. This is a good way to bring innovative projects to the forefront and to find potential funding for their further development,” according to Yves Zieba.

If projects wish to continue their development, a program proposed by the NTN Innovation Booster Living Labs for Decarbonisation supported by Innosuisse allows teams to be accompanied in the continuation of their project by assigning them experts in Switzerland to help them in their implementation. Each of these ideas relies on the support of NTN and partner Livings Labs, but also on implementation partners, who co-finance the innovation teams. To date, more than 17 projects have been funded and more than 200 ideas have been shared on the online open innovation platform
