Future Laboratory CreaLab at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences (LUASA) facilitates and promotes future-oriented and innovative, inter- and transdisciplinary research and education. At CreaLab, we examine, showcase, and live frameworks and methodologies that enable people to challenge the status-quo in both educational and societal contexts, through inspiring action-based formats ( Since 2009, CreaLab grew from the interest of professors and lecturers to cross departmental borders to a network which connects students and professionals of the university with practice in experimental environments to actively build into the unknown.  


Today, CreaLab is an extended ecology that brings its knowledge into large research projects supported by institutions such as Innosuisse, EU’s Horizon 2020 and the Swiss National Research Foundation. The emphasis is on solving real world challenges and developing new methods and interact with practice. We support internal organizational units and provide services to companies, institutions, and associations. The Future Laboratory is open to members, who want to expand their research and ideas with fellow academics and a broad public audience.  


CreaLab has established long-term projects around the focus themes of new work, circular economy, human centered technology and new learning. One central tool in the CreaLab ecology, is FabLab Luzern. Founded by CreaLab in 2011with support from the Gebert Rüf Foundation it was the first FabLab in Switzerland adhering to the FabLab Charter and participating in a expanding global network of its open source makerspaces. Today FabLab Luzern is part of the School of Engineering and Architecture and an important ‘membrane’ between the school and the public useful for CreaLab projects. Another long-term initiative is DiBuDeCo (Distributed Business Design Collaboration): Integrated into the course on Organisation Design in first year International Business Administration the format encourages independent creativity and teamwork as students experience what it means to prototype, develop and defend a product idea and how these processes relate to the life of an organization. Other successful projects integrated in the LUASA calendar are the CreaLab Summer School and Winter Schools where students from all departments develop innovation methods and apply them to challenges from practice partners or research. Some of the methods can be found on the CreaLab tool which offers free guidelines for innovation workshops.


Since 2015 CreaLab has developed the interdisciplinary un-conference Future Forum Lucerne ( which offers participants the opportunity to use their competences in experimental workshops thinking and acting for the future.
